A gift set highlighting a selection of three premium black tea and black-tea blends from Cincinnati's Wendigo Tea Co. This giftset is packaged in an elegant matte black box with matching black tins. Contains Bigfoot Black Tea, Black Shuck Earl Grey, and Firdebird Chai. Approximately 2.75 oz. of ridiculously high-grade loose-leaf tea.
The Firebird: A Spicy Masala Chai that leaves scorched remnants of other Chai teas far below its ferocious wings. The Firebird was born of the meanest Indian Estate black tea available, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, black pepper and all spice. Where other Chai teas expect you to add milk and heaps of sweetener to balance the bitter taste of inferior ingredients, Firebird stands alone as a unique masterpiece.
Black Shuck Earl Grey: The Black Shuck haunts the graveyard of English Prime Minister Earl Grey. It is the bloodthirsty beast that dwells in the shadows — a legendary hell hound, 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 — 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.
Bigfoot: A pure black tea whose leaves are naturally sweet. Bigfoot is a shy yet powerful beast with a musk full of fruits, nuts and trees. What you imagine when someone says “black tea” is a pale imitation of its beastly quality. Bigfoot is an Imperial Grade Golden Monkey from a tea workshop in Fuan county in the Fujiang province of China. It gets its name from its leaves, which look like long, brown, curly monkey hair and are so powerful that you can repeatedly steep them up to 6 times for pot after pot of aromatic bold tea to share with family and friends.
