I am Black Shuck, and I haunt the graveyard of English Prime Minister Earl Grey. I am the bloodthirsty beast that dwells in the shadows. I am a legendary hell hound, and I’m ready to pounce.
Most Earl Greys use perfumed flavor extracts to mask the boring, bitter taste of their cheap tea leaves. These teas may bash you in the face with flavor, but it’s the flavor of chemicals—not of high-quality tea leaves and all-natural ingredients. Wendigo Black Shuck Earl Grey is a beast of a different nature.
Black Shuck is a complex tea characterized by notes of warm autumn spices, earth, and invigorating citrus. Natural bergamot orange zest adds that signature Earl Grey taste to a delicate Indian black tea base. This tea’s classic flavor and haunting aftertaste will leave you looking off into the distance wondering, "Is that the Shuck?"
Yes it is.
*Currently First Flush( perfect growing season) base on Black Shuck. Limited availability and will return to usual seasonal premium black tea base when it runs out.*

-To make more tea out of your used tea leaves, repeat steps 3 through 5. Only re-use leaves this way in the same sitting.
-Start with the above, and then experiment to find what you like best! More tea leaves and/or longer steep times will make the taste and aroma stronger. Try 2 or 2 1/2 tsp per 8 oz if you wanna get wild.
-Try me hot or iced
-If you like your tea sweet, try it with honey, raw sugar, or agave nectar.
-I won’t tell anyone if you throw a spot of milk in there too.
