Our Austin Breakfast honors the intensity and laid-backness of Austin. The pure Indian black tea is at once bold and smooth. It has a deep character and clean finish like a great Irish breakfast.

Single Estate Indian tea from the Nilgiri blue mountains.

    Nice Ceylon black tea. To me, this tastes like "plain old black tea." It's a nice example of Ceylon black tea, but I tend to like more nuances in the taste of my tea. I drink tea without sugar or cream, but I suspect this would be a good tea for those who like to add sugar and/or cream.

    Super smooth and mellow. Maybe the best black tea I've ever tasted.

    Tastes great by itself or with a bit of milk and sugar. I recently just bought a tin, and I'm running out! Thank you for this awesome tea!

Water: 208°F | Leaves: 2 tsp per 12 ounce cup | Infusion Time: 3 minutes

Basic Steeping Tips
- Use filtered or spring water, whenever possible
- Don’t overboil water
- Remove leaves after recommended time (adjust to taste)
- If you want stronger tea, use more leaves instead of steeping for a longer time.
Leaves can be re-steeped 2-3 times resulting in various flavor differences. Don’t throw out those leaves until they have given it all up!
Black tea has a class of polyphenols that protect your bones and teeth (help the body from pulling calcium) and is good for your heart. Black tea contains antioxidants and about 1/3 the amount of caffeine as found in a cup of coffee.
The history of tea in China is long and complex. The Chinese have enjoyed tea for millennia. Scholars hailed the brew as a cure for a variety of ailments; the nobility considered the consumption of good tea as a mark of their status, and the common people simply enjoyed its flavor.

Tea was first discovered by the Chinese Emperor Shennong in 2737 BC. It is said that the emperor liked his drinking water boiled before he drank it so it would be clean, so that is what his servants did. One day, on a trip to a distant region, he and his army stopped to rest. A servant began boiling water for him to drink, and a dead leaf from the wild tea bush fell into the water. It turned a brownish color, but it was unnoticed and presented to the emperor anyway. The emperor drank it and found it very refreshing, and cha (tea) was born.
