If you’re looking for a loose leaf blend that raises tea to the realm of sumptuous dessert, look no further than Hazelnut Truffle Black Tea. This Ceylon tea is grown in the heart of Sri Lanka, where the high elevation, fertile soils and tropical climate produce some of the best quality tea in the world. The semi-fermented young leaves yield a mild and pleasantly fragrant liquor. Blended with the chocolate of cacao shells and flakes of fragrant coconut, it has a naturally sweet and tropical flavor that stirs the palate. A sprinkling of soy lends a smooth and creamy mouth-feel, while toasty hazelnut makes this ebony tea extra-enticing and warmly euphoric, so the scent alone will make you and your friends want more.
Buy these Ceylon tea leaves in elegant, airtight canisters containing approximately 40-50 servings. We recommend steeping it at 208 F for 3-5 minutes, using one teaspoon per 8 ounces of water. Add a touch of milk and sweetener for a decadent dessert beverage. For loose leaf iced teas, use 2 teaspoons per 8 ounces of water.
