Drink The Leaf Blood Orange Black

Dry leaf appearance: black wiry leaves with bright orange and goldenrod shavings mixed throughout

Step three: put 1 tsp of dry leaf per 6 ounces of hot water, wait 3-4 minutes
Step four: pour the dark amber brew into your favorite teacup, take that first sip….


Folks, what we have here is a home run from Sri Lanka! This tea is smooth with very little astringency. It has citrus notes that are perfectly balanced in the black tea base. I fear I do not have enough of this tea in my cupboard.

You can purchase the Blood Orange Black directly from the Drink The Leaf website.
