The black tea is based off of an Irish Breakfast tea recipe combining two hearty black teas from Sri Lanka and India to get your morning off to a bright start. It begins with a base of mellow Ceylon Orange Pekoe tea from high in the mountains of Sri Lanka. The Ceylon Dimbula used consists of long leaves with few tips – giving the tea light but brisk citrus notes with a clean, bright aroma.
Steep Fuze blends their Ceylon with an Assam tea from India. The larger leaves from lower elevation bring on a smooth biscuit mouthfeel and add a malty underscore to the flavor with hints of walnut on the finish.
This tea is caffeinated.
How does Steep Fuze infuse? With essentially no oils to work with when infusing tea, they infuse some of the different components of the total dissolved solids (TDS) that start in the leaf and end up in your cup. With tea having a more delicate flavor profile than coffee, the infusion process is much more delicate as well. They bind their CBD to the flavonoids, amino acids, and simple carbohydrates like sugars that are expressed during steeping. The teas are infused at a 2:1 ratio of milligrams of CBD to grams of loose leaf tea for easy measuring.
