black velvet

Tastemaker platinum badge
created by: Julie Bowdren
I've taken two unique black teas: pu erh dante with strong, earthy undertones and mambo which is a rich mixture of Wuyi and Yunnan region black teas and lightened it with cream flavored ceylon tea for a velvety finish.

ingredients & lore

blended with pu erh dante, black tea, yunnan jig tea, wuyi ensemble tea, natural creme flavor

teas: pu erh dante, mambo, cream

steep at 212° for 3 mins

This tea contains a high level of caffeine
Pu erh tea is known in china to aid in weight loss, but seems to be an acquired taste due to its earthy flavor. I wanted to harness its healthful potential within a blend to make it more accessible. All three of these teas are rich and robust in their own right, and with mambo at the center, they all dance together with ease.
