Black Tea is commonly produced from the larger leaves of the Camellia sinensis shrub. Due to its level of oxidation, it has a much bolder flavor than its green or white tea counterparts.

Greet the early morning sunrise with a steaming cup of this classic tea. Our Organic Black Tea is the perfect full-bodied blend, possessing mild fruity and earthy undertones. A worldwide bestseller made famous by British ‘tea-time’, the down-to-earth simplicity of this tea will have you loving every sip as much as we do.

Brewing Recommendation:

1. Heat 1 cup of water to 190 degrees. 
2. Add 1 teaspoon of Black Tea into a tea strainer. 
3. Pour water over herbs and steep for 3-5 minutes. 
4. Remove tea strainer and herbs. Sweeten if desired and enjoy!

    How To Grow Your Own Scoby

    WHAT YOU'LL NEED

      • 1 Store-bought bottle of unflavored Kombucha (needs to be unpasturized/raw)

     

    HOW TO MAKE IT...

        1. Pour kombucha in a clean quart jar.
        2. Cover jar with cheesecloth or kitchen towel and secure with rubber band.
        3. Let it set on your countertop, out of sunlight for 2 weeks until a white film (the scoby) begins to form on top.

     

    DO NOT jostle or it will sink to the bottom and you will need to begin again. The film will continue to grow thicker as it sits on your counter. Once it's about a 1/4" thick, you're good to go! (with warmer weather it should take about 2-3 weeks to finish, cooler weather may take a little longer)

    How To Brew Kombucha Tea

    WHAT YOU'LL NEED

        • 10 cups water
        • 12 teaspoons Black Tea or tea of choice
        • 3/4 cup organic sugar
        • 1 1/2 cups kombucha from previous batch (what you grew the SCOBY in)

     

    HOW TO MAKE IT...

          1. Pour water, black tea and sugar in a large pot and bring to a boil.
          2. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
          3. After completely cooled, strain off sweetened tea using a fine sieve or cheesecloth. Pour strained sweetened tea, along with 1 1/2 c. kombucha from previous batch, into a clean glass jar (a gallon jar works well).
          4. With clean hands, gently place SCOBY to float on top. Cover jar with cheesecloth or kitchen towel and secure with rubber band.
          5. Place jar in a safe place out of sunlight and let it brew. Start tasting it after 4-5 days and ferment to desired tanginess.
          6. Remember to save some for your next batch!
