Ingredients & Lore
blended with black tea, cinnamon & natural cinnamon flavor
Cinnamon was so highly prized in ancient Greece, it was a gift only for deities. Egyptians used it as an incense (kyphi,) and Sappho wrote of kasia in her poetry. Cinnamon comes from the inner bark of the genus Cinnamomum verum grown in Sri Lanka, or Cinnamomum cassia, grown in China. Vietnam and Indonesia are also top producers. It is used as a rolled piece of bark (a quill) or ground into a powder and added to savories to add umami or to beverages like tea, coffee or hot chocolate to add warmth to the body.
Raw Honey for Black Teas
Layered character of this raw honey is an ideal sweetener for black teas, adding notes of spice and fruit.
