Azores Black
Azores Black

Origin:  Portugal ~ Sao Miguel
Estate:  Gorreana
Quick Description:  Black Tea

This European-grown tea is from Gorreana, a single estate on the island of Sao Miguel which is part of the Azores, an archipelago off the coast of Portugal. Gorreana has been in continuous operation & owned by one family since 1883. Although not certified, this idyllically located garden uses organic farming methods without the use of chemicals, herbicides, pesticides, or fungicides. The mineral rich volcanic soil & briny Atlantic breezes imbue Gorreana tea with truly unique character.

Gorrean's Black, OP Tea leaves are long & slightly twisted & produce an aromatic, medium-bodied cup of honey & brisk citrus notes. A must try!
