Wakandan Breakfast - Malty African Blend
In honor of the crowning of Wakanda's newest king, T'Challa, we have made a complete African breakfast blend through and through. Why is there no Wakandan tea? Well, they don't grow it, unfortunately. So we went to its neighbors Tanzania and Kenya, blended them over a Ugandan base, and threw in a touch of South African honeybush to sweeten the pot. Try this tea straight up for a great, astringent, smooth, malty, and lightly sweet black blend, or make it colonizer style with some milk and sugar (steep it a little longer if you do that, though!) for a more traditional black blend with smoother, supremely malty flavors with that same earthy, sweet undertone. Wakanda Forever!
We suggest making this one with milk or sugar, or possibly as a latte. It is most popular steeped 4 minutes with half of a shot's worth of Half 'n' Half milk & 1-2 tsp of sugar.
If that's not how you like it, though, drink away! We absolutely will not shame you; we're not here to judge, just to provide a delicious product. There is no wrong way to drink tea, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
