Lumbini FBOP | Black Tea
"This is my favorite all-purpose tea. It is a great straight black tea, strong and smooth. It’s hearty enough to be a breakfast tea and takes milk & sugar well, but smooth enough it doesn’t need them. It makes a perfect iced tea; great brisk flavor and it doesn’t cloud. It is even a great tea to blend with; add a couple drops of vanilla extract or a piece of candied ginger… wonderful. This is the Swiss Army Knife of teas." -BIll W.
Description: This exceptional black tea brews up with a deep, rich aroma and a gorgeous copper-red hue. The liquor is full-bodied with complex, thick flavor notes and hints of a spicy sweetness.
