Ceylon (High Grown Seasonal Aislaby Tea Estate) Black Tea

This seasonal tea from the Aislaby Tea Estate in Sri Lanka’s Uva district takes black tea to another level! Hot days, cold nights and strong winds  combine to stress the bush and build flavour, while the oxidation process is minimised to result in a black tea with a number of green tea characteristics -  it's deeply aromatic with complex flavours, including intriguing notes of wintergreen. It's one of our favourite black teas.

Food pairing: Sweet and lightly spiced food, Continental breakfast, English breakfast, also great in the afternoon on its own or with cake. 

Brewing instructions: Best without milk, or just a dash. 1-2 teaspoons of loose leaf or 1 pyramid bag. 2-3 mins at 90-95ºC without milk, 4-5mins at 95-100ºC with milk. Just turn your kettle off before boiling if you don't have a temperature controlled kettle.

Ingredients: Black Tea. Contains Caffeine.

Until at least the end of June, £1 for every large loose leaf pack sold will be donated to Regenerate-RISE, supporting vulnerable isolated elderly including supply boxes due to Coronavirus.

    A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

    Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
    ...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
