The tangy, bright and perfectly balanced flavors of Ceylon black tea are a great canvas for many flavor expressions. The very best Ceylons blend easily with flavors giving them excellent depth and complexity. Take our Almond Black, for example. Touch of raw almond aroma, plush mouthfeel reminiscent of creamy marzipan, with nutty sweetness upfront and balanced, clean astringency.

Ingredients & Lore
blended with black tea & natural almond flavor
Botanically, almonds are stone fruits related to cherry, plum, and peach. Dating from biblical times, modern-day almonds are part of the financial wealth of California where 6,000 farmers produce 70% of the world’s almonds and export the nut to 90 countries. Brought to the state from Spain in the mid 1700s, almonds are grown nowhere else in the U.S. except California. The tasty nut plays a charming role in customs from showering newlyweds for fertility (ancient Rome,) hiding an almond in cinnamon-dusted rice pudding for Christmas (Sweden,) and giving wedding guests sugared almonds, representing children, good health, and fortune (United States).
