About this tea

Tea Story

In 1866, Joshua Lane Jordan set sail from Maine in the merchant ship The Pride of the Port. With England, India and New Orleans as his destinations, he transported commodities from America to the other side of the world and back again. Over a hundred and fifty years later, his great-great-grandson – our esteemed tea buyer, Eliot Jordan – set out to craft a premium blend of China and India black teas that paid homage to this familiar and familial route.

Brewing Tips

Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 1 spoonful (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
Bring the water to a rolling boil; steep tea for 4 minutes.
Strain leaves while pouring.

Sitting on the window seat looking out at ships coming and going to and from the Port of Oakland, enjoying Pride of the Port, we are wondering if the teas come in by boat to this port, and if they are blended here in the East Bay.

After reading the great reviews, I decided to try a can of Pride of the Port Tea last month. I absolutely love it! It's now my favorite tea. I can't explain it, but the flavor is unique and amazing. I'll be getting more of this very soon!

Pride of port what can i say. I usually like Peets earl gray and english breakfast. Initially when i tried Pride of port I didn''t think too highly of it. Don''t get me wrong it isn''t bad, but it just wasn''t my earl gray or english breakfast. It''s a little stronger than other black teas. But lately its starting to grow on me. I don''t know much about tea, but I am starting to see how people like this. Its as if they taken the characteristics of other black teas and placed it in this one tea.

Pride of Port is a superb tea blend that makes the perfect afternoon "cuppa". Full bodied, stands up to milk, but doesn''t require it. We order by the pound. Unlike some blends, this has complexity and depth. Enough astringency to be interesting, but without bitterness. Think of this as the "Major Dickason" of tea, and you won't be far wrong.

This is a really wonderful blend of teas, resulting in a delightful cup for either the morning or the afternoon. Superb earthy undertones help support the robust flavor and assertiveness of this tea, holding up to milk beautifully. I am never without some of this tea laying around; it is essential. I cannot make a work-week without, having to drive through the Bronx every morning, this tea makes for a wonderful distraction from the tedium of traffic.

Great blend of black teas with a fruity aroma and astringent feel. It is subtle, allowing me to enjoy the peachy fruit flavors.

Pride of the Port is a well-kept secret and one of my personal treasures that I look forward to at Peets.<br> This tea has so many wonderful qualities. There is the intense and complex aroma that has a hint of sweet toastiness. This tea also posses a mild fruity smell, that brightens up my day.<br> Drinking the tea is also a wonderful experience. It comes off a little strong when I take that first sip, but becomes bright and mildly astringent. The clean finish leaves me wanting to drink more. Pride of the Port is a good departure from the
