Our Price: $8.00



This black tea is grown in the tropical country of Colombia. With minimal processing, the true terroir of this tea grown at a high elevation of 1,800-2,050 meters, the start of the Andean mountain range, shines through. This completely oxidized tea, with perfectly harvested tea leaves, has a rich copper color. Stronger mineral undertones give way to dark cherries and cassis while remaining brisk and clear. This unique flavor profile also boosts a tea very high in caffeine. Enjoy drinking a tea from the small community of La. Cumbre in Colombia South America!

Colombia isn't known for its tea production, and Bitaco is one of the few growers producing high quality loose leaf tea. Organic cultivation along with a desire to help preserve their unique fog forest ecosystem has led them to establish this tea garden surrounded by Bitaco Regional Forest Reserve where their garden acts as a biological corridor for 256 species of birds, 28 amphibians, 23 reptiles and 772 species of flora.

As this is a black tea, it is best to use boiling water or water that has recently boiled. Use water with a temperature around 205-210 degrees.
