Fujian Baroque is a black tea grown at 800 meters above sea level in the Fujian province of China. Its general attributes are similar to the Golden Monkey, but the leaf is finer and the aroma even more pronounced. The exquisite tapestry of naturally sweet cocoa notes, fruitiness, and glimmers of spice are unmatched by any other tea. Softly sweet and velvety, with leafy autumn notes and soft, mineral aftertaste. Fujian Baroque can be brewed light or strong; the taste will remain smooth with very delicate astringency.
Black Tea | High caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.

Fresh From Origin
In the 1991 Disney classic Beauty and the Beast, Cogsworth makes the joke “If it’s not baroque, don’t fix it,” but our favorite anthropomorphic clock’s got a good point. The baroque period, which started in the early 17th century, was a time of great experimentation and discovery in architecture, painting, music, and more. Known for its excess, complexity, and ornamentation, it gave rise to composers such as Pachabel (of famous wedding song “Canon in D” fame), Vivaldi, Handel, and saw the addition of the piano, opera, and classical ballet. As in art and tea, we say leave it baroque!
