The Mantra: Fight the system, and take what is rightfully yours.
The Experience: Sweet, spicy, smooth.
There's a rebel in all of us, dreaming of swashbuckling adventures on the open sea, with the wind at our backs, sailing into the unknown.
This blend is a tribute to raising the black flag against the challenges of day-to-day life by combining rum-treated* black tea with sweet coconut and cinnamon to give you the courage to get back out there and take what's yours.
For this blend, we recommend putting 1 Tablespoon of Tea for every 2 cups (or 16 fluid ounces) of boiled, filtered water. Use boiling water around 208°F / 98°C to draw out the best in the Black Tea. Depending on your strength preference, steep between 3 to 5 minutes. Strain the leaves and serve hot, sweetened, or un-sweetened. We enjoy this blend most with milk.
*Please note that the Rum treatment used contains Organic Cane Alcohol and Natural Flavors.
Each unit contains 30g, or 1 ounce of blended Tea. Serving sizes can change according to how much Tea is used for each cup or pot.
