Tea Forte presents another seductive entry in their NOIR series of black teas. Black Cherry is handpicked from the famed Jamguri tea garden, then pan-roasted for a penetrating taste. Keeping that robust intensity in check is the addition of cherry, strawberry, raspberry, organic licorice root and orchid vanilla from Madagascar. In the wake of the assertive black tea base, these sweeter ingredients coat the palate in fruity notes, making this a bright and vibrant tea that surprises with every mouthful.
Buy these cherry black tea leaves in sleek, elegant canisters, each containing 35-50 servings depending on preferred strength. Bring cool water to a boil and pour it over 1 teaspoon of tea leaves per 8 ounces of water. Steep for 3-5 minutes. For loose leaf iced teas, use 2 teaspoons per 8 ounces of water.
