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
Almonds are mentioned as far back in history as the Bible. They were a prized ingredient in bread served to Egypt's pharaohs. Their exact ancestry is unknown, but almonds are thought to have originated in China and Central Asia. Explorers ate almonds while traveling the Silk Road between Asia and the Mediterranean. In the 18th Century, aided by the Franciscan monks, the almond tree made a leap to California, where it found a hospitable home. A large almond industry is now based in the Sacramento area.
