Red Wedding - Cardamom Vanilla Black
Blended In-House

Want something spiced, but not spicy? This might be your thing. A traditional wedding blend from India, our Red Wedding uses crushed Guatemalan cardamom pods, Mexican vanilla bean, traditional Chinese black tea, and some bright red safflower petals for effect. Smooth, delightful, and lightly caffeinated, this blend is soothing for any occasion!

Brewing Suggestions

  • Use 7g (≈1 tbsp) of leaf per ½ liter (≈17 oz) of water.
  • Use boiling (100°C/212°F) water
  • Steep for 3 minutes, strain leaves, and enjoy!
    • Don't forget to try for multiple infusions! Just add time to each steep.
      • For under 2:00 steep times, add 30 sec.
      • For 2:00 to 4:00, add 1 minute.
      • For over 4:00, add 2 minutes or more.
    • Like milk in your tea? Steep an extra minute!
    • Too strong? Take off a minute, or use 5g of leaf instead!
    • Too light? Kick it up another minute, or use 10g of leaf instead!
    • Wanna do a tea latte? This one's pretty light, so we're not sure it'll hold up to the milk, but you're welcome to try!
      • Use 11g (≈1½ tbsp) of leaf per ½ liter (≈17 oz).
      • Steep 3 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 (1 tsp usually does it), and enjoy!

Shipping

We are a small independent operation, and as such we operate inside of our retail space, the Phoenix Pearl Tea Tavern in Red Lodge, MT. We bag teas for orders while also serving in-store customers, including making cups of tea, making food, and selling bulk and retail purchases. Our employees work as quickly as they can, but we don't have a warehouse to operate out of with dedicated employees. As such, orders may take anywhere from 1-5 business days to ship. Thank you for understanding.

    Very smooth and delicious! If you like chai, but want something a little more subtle I highly recommend this tea.
