STORY: to be considered as 'the toast of Canada' from a tea perspective, the tea had to be able to 'shine' in any water. For this reason a broad range of origin teas were used. More than 35 various teas were tasted using the water sent to us from various parts of the country. The tasting session extended more than 2 days until the right blend was achieved which combined the best teas a synergistic relation. A few additional refinements were undertaken the final result was an outstanding tea - the best in Canada, if not North America or the world. The Assam component (2nd flush, June Production) gives a thick malt and full-bodied character. The Kenyan component gives a floral-like cup and coppery infusion whereas the South Indian component gives superb fruity and sprightly flavour with a lovely finish. Lastly, to draw everything together we added some Keemun, which gives a burgundy depth with light oaky notes.
