Rock Creek - Loose Leaf

Named for the brook that runs through out little town here, the Rock Creek is a rich, intense black tea with potent blackberry flavor. Blackberry is a powerful flavor by itself, capable of easily overpowering a drink and pushing it into the bitter side of the flavor pallet, and with a strong black tea as a base, it results in a blend that must be approached with caution, like a flowing river. To tame the beast, we steep it short and toss in a touch of sugar, and not only does it mellow the astringency and pop the fruit, but it draws out the mellowing agent of the sage, making a well-rounded, delicious fruity experience.

Brewing Suggestions

  • Use 7g (≈1 tbsp) of leaf per ½ liter (≈17 oz) of water.
  • Use boiling (100°C/212°F) water
  • Steep for 1:30, strain leaves, and enjoy!
    • Like milk in your tea? Steep a bit longer!
    • Too strong? Take it off early, or use 5g of leaf instead!
    • Too light? Steep it a bit longer, or use 10g of leaf instead!
    • Wanna do a tea latte?
      • Use 11g (≈1½ tbsp) of leaf per ½ liter (≈17 oz).
      • Steep 2 minutes in ¼ liter (≈8 oz) boiling (100°C/212°C) water
      • Add ¼ liter (≈8 oz) hot milk, steep another 3 minutes.
      • Strain leaves, add sugar if you like (5g or 1 tsp usually does it), and enjoy!
