BROOKLYN TEA BLENDS CARAVAN TRIAD is a perfect marriage of three black teas. Blended together to achieve a memorizing complex but smooth taste. Richly and malty yet with great harmony of spices, fruits and wealth of smolderingly smoky aroma. According to legend, one builder stood out from the rest during the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge in the late 1800s. In an era when most builders were scruffy and disheveled, he always came to work in a tidy suit. He spoke quietly, politely and with authority. Others listened when he spoke. What truly made our hero a gentleman, however, was his habit of putting others first no matter the race, class, or creed of his fellow builders. Every morning, our gentleman arrived at the building site before the workday began. Taking his time, he would brew a cup of his fine smoked black tea and sip on it leisurely while watching the sun rise up over the horizon. He enjoyed these precious moments, which let him feel at one with the city and understand his existence in the world. He was aware that, in helping to build the Brooklyn Bridge, he was creating something that would last far beyond his lifetime. He began to bring enough fine black tea for everyone and made sure to brew extra for his coworkers. Anyone who asked for a cup received one, and a curious thing began to happen. The workers began to lose some of their roughness and become more refined. They still worked hard, but dressed neater, were more courteous, and became better husbands and fathers. Within a year, the morning brew of the fine smoked black tea was a tradition among the builders and engineers of the Brooklyn Bridge. Even today, some say that the pride and love that are evident today in the bridge are the result of the tea that supported the workers who built it. Is the legend true? Nobody can say for sure, but the spirit of the true Brooklyn Gentleman is alive today if you look carefully.

Brooklyn Tea Blends CARAVAN TRIAD is a perfect compliment to any single malt whisky. One of the greatest gentleman of the last century, Sir Winston Churchill, preferred a smoked tea aroma to complement the taste of his single malt scotch. Take a sip of the whisky followed by a sip of our tea, and you will witness the interwoven flavors forming a strong and smoky taste palate with a light citrusy aftertaste. A taste worthy of a true gentleman!
