From the Manufacturer

Taylors of Harrogate South African Kwazulu Loose Tea lets you brew the perfect cup of this unique tea. Special and rare, South African Kwazulu tea from the Ntingwe Estate in northern Zululand is almost unheard of in America. It's an outstanding tea that's light, bright, and refreshing. South Africans are passionate about tea drinking, imbibing about 10 billion cups of tea a year, which means that very little of this tea gets exported. Now's your chance to taste it for yourself! Best enjoyed with milk, Kwazulu is perfect as a breakfast or afternoon tea. This tea comes bagged to help preserve its freshness. Taylors is the recipient of the British Tea Councils Best Cup of Tea in England award, which ensures that Kwazulu, like every tea they blend, is of the highest quality.

Important Information

Directions
The Golden Rules of Tea Making: 1. Always use good quality tea. 2. Use freshly drawn water everytime you brew. Water that has already boiled has lost oxygen and will give a flat, lifeless tasting cup of tea. 3. Warm the pot. 4. Add one teaspoon of tea per person and one for the pot. 5. Pour on the water just on the boil. 6. Allow to brew for at least four minutes and not more than six minutes. Stir, pour and serve. Add the milk first or last as you prefer. Some teas and tisanes need a shorter or longer brewing time so you may have to experiment to get the taste just right for you. Tisanes are not usually served will milk. The Storage of Tea: Our teas are packed into airtight foil bags, both to protect the tea from contamination and staling and to keep it dry. We recommend that, once opened, the contents are stored in an airtight container, preferably away from bright lights. To ensure that you are selling or serving tea at its best, try to rotate your stock carefully, using up one bag completely before opening a new one. To avoid tainting keep strongly scented teas separate from the more delicate ones.

No fluffy perfumes or flavorings.

It has a very distinctive flavor, that is stronger than an English Breakfast variety.

Let me start by saying that I'm a lifelong tea drinker and I love tea, and I've tried all sorts.

I started out years ago with Lipton's before all these different designer brands and flavors came along. Black Ceylon tea was what they called it.
Then when all these designer brands and flavors came out I tried all the exotic flavors I could get my hands on, mango, vanilla, raspberry, chocoloate, peach, whatever. I tried different brands, I tried expensive teas, inexpensive teas, organic teas, the standards such as Earl Grey, Darjeeling, Assam, etc.

Finally, I came back to this tea. It was like travelling around the world in a circle and coming back to the start. I love this tea because I've found all that other stuff, apple, peach, raspberry, just detracts from the true flavor of tea. This tea is just pure tea, without any other distracting flavors and that's what I love about it. A stong tea, a robust tea with full strong flavor, for a man (or a manly woman).

Words can hardly describe my feelings about it. When I make it just right, the right temperature, the right strength, I can just feel the tea molecules infuse every part of my body. So far, I have not been able to find another unadulterated tea with such a full and strong flavor. I love it. 10/10. I imagine this is what the British conquered their empire on. I can imagine some British explorer brewing this tea in a battered tin pan before conquering some mountain top, or the the Artic, or some jungle or facing a mutiny. Cheers, old bean.

We first sampled Kwazulu tea on a visit to one of Taylor's tearooms in York, England in 2005. We brought some back with us, but were unable to find it locally. Was glad to see that Amazon now carries it. For tea lovers who like a strong, English tea, you will like this one. It has a very distinctive flavor, that is stronger than an English Breakfast variety. It has a pretty copper color. (The loose tea is in little nuggets, not black leaves like you would expect.) A great way to start off your day, and though the English would quite disapprove, it is also excellent iced as its strong flavor doesn't get watered down so easily. For people with the Senseo machines, if you buy one of the reusable and refillable Eco-Pad podfilters, you can fill it with this loose tea and it works perfectly! Just don't pack the tea in too tightly, as it expands quite a bit.

South Africans are as avid tea drinkers as the inhabitants of any other country (formerly) belonging to the British Commmonwealth -- today, consumption averages about 10 billion cups per year -- and tea was first grown in Durban Botanical Gardens in 1850 from plants imported from London's Kew Gardens (commercial production began in 1877, with seeds coming from Assam in northeastern India). Yet, production around the major tea center of Tzaneen in the Northern Province (formerly known as North-East Transvaal) as well as in the country's other tea growing locations has had an unstable history; staggering badly in the mid-twentieth century and although revived thereafter, available only domestically during apartheid. Only after apartheid ended, South African tea farmers were able to export their products. Hence, black tea from South Africa is still a fairly well-kept secret; although roughly 40% of the country's tea is now sold on the world market and it is already among the world's top 20 tea-producing nations.

Harvested before the beginning of the winter cool, between October and April, a tea fairly well-known outside South Africa is that produced by the Ntingwe Estate located in a remote corner of the Kwazulu-Natal heartland. Established in 1987 and with over 200 permanent employees, 430 seasonal pickers as well as a program involving the cooperation of local farmers with the estate's on-site processing plant, Ntingwe is *the* single biggest employer and source of financial stability in a region otherwise plagued by record unemployment numbers (up to 60%), illiteracy and poverty. Lighter than other African (e.g. Kenyan) teas, Ntingwe tea has gained an excellent reputation in the short time since its introduction to the international market and makes for as great a breakfast tea as an afternoon refreshment or a pick-me-up throughout the day.

If all you want is a perfect cup of tea, this is it. There are no buzzers or bells tacked on to this tea. No fluffy perfumes or flavorings. No gimics. It's just great tea.
