There are teas that are about a lot of things, and teas that are about just one thing: tea. This tea tastes like wind wuthering over heathered moors and a historical true crime novel about Jack the Ripper and clotted cream and scones with Agatha Christie during the eleven days she was disappeared. This tea does not have flavors of citrus, or bits of fruit, nor spices, nor oils. This tea is a steaming cup of film noire; it wants the facts, nothing but the facts, plus a moderate amount of caffeine, a strong quick brew, a round cup, balanced tannins and a bunch of antioxidants. A strong dark tea, for a damp dark night in a city that keeps its secrets.
Yorkshire Harrogate is a tea for the those who appreciate the simple beauty of a perfectly brewed cuppa. Truly unbeatable fullness and flavor, with a sparkling astringency, and an affinity for a splash of milk. A BOP (Broken Orange Pekoe) tea blend hailing from Kenya’s Nandi Highlands, China’s Yunnan Provence, India’s Nilgiri and Assam tea regions. The broken leaf style ensures a bold, strong brew that pairs well with a good mystery.
