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.

I used to enjoy this tea, but my latest batch was almost powdery at times, and the rich flavor was missing. I then purchased a 1/4lb tin at a store last weekend to see if it was just my large batch that was disappointing, but this was equally so.
Having discovered that Santa Rosa Peet's no longer stocks Yunnan Fancy, even for onsite consumption, and that the baristas had never even heard of it, I don't think I will be a Peet's Tea customer for much longer ... Then there was the 12oz Mighty Leaf Earl Grey Tea ($3.75) at SFO the following day. Not a hint of Bergamot.

Fantastic black tea. It's all I drink now. Full bodied and flavorful. Caution - do not over brew or it will be very bitter. Three or four minutes brew time - tops.
