Elmwood Inn Kentucky Blend Black Tea, Bagged
For over 25 years, this robust blend of classic black Chinese teas from Yunnan and Anhui Provinces has been Elmwood Inn's signature tea. Their tea blender grew up on a farm in Kentucky and many of his earliest memories revolved around the smell of freshly plowed earth, the leather on a horse's saddle, or the hayloft of a barn. He wanted to create a tea that reminded him of those experiences. This full-bodied tea is a wonderful cup for breakfast or afternoon tea. Rich and earthy, it will remind you of a morning walk in the Kentucky countryside - thoroughbreds not included.
