  • Earl Grey Premium

    There are tea people and then there are Earl Grey tea people (who are somewhat like chai people in that they are ever on the prowl for that special one).  We are definitely in the second group..always looking for perfection.  So, we finally decided to blend our own to get exactly what we were looking for.  This is a smooth, fragrant, Earl Grey delight.  We used two blends of Earl Grey we loved, each for their own qualities, and combined them in just the right ratio for a result that is the best of each, and completely lovely.  This will make Earl Grey lovers very happy.

    Serving Suggestion:  Makes lattes ‘to live for’ if you’re one of those Vanilla Earl Grey Latte types.  Just make sure you use a really quality vanilla syrup.

    Brewing Instructions:  Use 1 heaping tsp. to 1 tbs. per 8 oz. water, to taste.  Steep 3-4 minutes (strong tea) at 190-195F.

    Ingredients:  Black tea, essential Bergamot oil

  • Assam

    Two major tea growing regions in India are Assam and Darjeeling.   Assam conditions yield a bold, heavy, musty, earthy black tea that stands up to milk and sugar.  We blend this with the Sri Lankan English Breakfast and a strong Chinese black tea for our Irish Breakfast, but alone it is just one powerful cuppa.

    Serving Suggestion:   Serve strong and hot, alone or with milk and sugar.

    Brewing Instructions:  Use 1 heaping tsp. to 1 tbs. per 8 oz. water, to taste.  Steep 3-4 minutes to desired strength at 190 – 195F

    Ingredients:  Black tea from India’s Assam region, sourced from a certified organic, Fair Trade supplier.

    **DECAF ASSAM AVAILABLE by custom order, same price, 1 lb. minimum, we pay shipping on 1 lb. or more.  Order 16 oz. regular Assam and write ‘DECAF’ in PayPal Instructions to Seller, or email us at info@calteas.com for more information.

  • Darjeeling

    The Darjeeling region of India yields much gentler tea than Assam–lighter, nutty, with nuances accompanying each ‘flush’ or picking.  As seasons pass, the infusion with each picking becomes bolder and yet retains the essence of why Darjeeling is known as ‘the champagne of tea‘..truly a delicacy even with later flushes, accompanying the perceptible earthiness of Indian teas.  A toasty essence combines to give a lovely finish.  This is an autumnal flush Darjeeling.

    Serving Suggestion:   Serve black or with milk & sweetener.

    Brewing Instructions:  Use 1 heaping tsp. to 1 tbs. per 8 oz. water, to taste.  Steep 4 minutes at 190-195F

    Ingredients: (Autumnal flush) Darjeeling black tea

    Sourced from a certified organic, Fair Trade supplier
