North Pole - The Arctic Ocean

North Pole - The Arctic Ocean

This month we’re braving the cold and going to the North Pole. We’ve got a lovely black tea. This delicious tea has been specially selected by Mr & Mrs. Claus, and imbued with just a little bit of magic. After all, we’ll need a winter warmer and this tea just does the trick.

Grown in Santa’s greenhouse, overlooking the vast icy landscape of the Arctic. It is rumoured that this location is home to many hardworking elves. Not many people get to visit this secret location, but we found that the elves not only make Christmas gifts, but are avid farmers! They are able to use their magic abilities to create specially blended teas. But only those on Santa’s ‘nice’ list get to try it.

Many people are mistaken to think that there isn’t much diversity or life forms in the North Pole, aside from Santa and his elves. But you may be lucky enough to find polar bears, arctic foxes, arctic hares, walruses, seals, reindeer and even narwhals amonst other animals. The North Pole is much warmer than the South Pole, with the highest temperature being 0°C. That’s why Santa loves tea so much - it’s perfect to warm him up. He is also big on quality control, so he taste tests every tea that the elves blend to make sure they’re full of Christmas cheer.

This tea has a subtle malty taste with orange undertones. The sweetness of the orange pieces are perfectly balanced with the taste of the black tea. The rose petals further compliment the flavours by adding an subtly sweet yet earthy note. The aroma is also very comforting, so you can really relax and cosy up for Christmas on those cold winter evenings.

Why we love Christmas Cuppa
Assam Black Tea is delicious even on it’s own with it’s rich malty flavour. However when blended with natural orange flavour, orange pieces and rose petals - it is perfect. It is a second flush tea, full of flavour.
