The Mantra: Awaken the beast within.
The Experience: Dark, strong, bold.
The legend that started it all.
A propitiatory blend of Darjeeling, Ceylon, Assam, and Earl Gray delivers the most solid foundation to your day, and one we've been drinking for two decades straight.
We're all kings and queens of our respective kingdoms, so make your mark on the world and unleash the ferocity within.
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.
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.
Whenever possible, we'd like to show our appreciation to the farmers who grow, pick, and process the Tea for our blends. For Lion's Crest, we'd especially like to thank the following growers, and showcase some basic information about where the Tea comes from:
