Our signature tea, Paris in a Teacup Black Tea, is absolute perfection and our best selling flavor. This decadent black tea is naturally flavored with French caramel and crème brulee taste. This scrumptious tea has a dark amber cup that is sweet and creamy with a finish that tastes like caramelized brown sugar.
As a black tea, Paris in a Teacup does contain caffeine. If the flavor excites you, try our naturally caffeine version French Caramel Creme Brulee. This tea also contains high levels of antioxidants.
Paris in a Teacup can be enjoyed served hot or iced. It takes well to sugar, honey, other sweeteners and milk.
There are a variety of ways to prepare this tea:
Traditional Hot Tea
Measure one heaping teaspoon of tea leaves per one cup water into a tea filter or into an infuser of your choice. Keep in mind, the infuser you choose must be large enough to allow the tea leaves to swell and unfurl. This allows the tea leaves to release their full flavor. Place filter into teapot or mug. Bring filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil then pour into teapot or mug. Infuse 3-7 minutes. Remove the filter and discard or remove infuser and discard tea leaves. Garnish as desired with sugar, honey, sweetener and/or lemon slices.
Measure six heaping teaspoons of tea leaves into a tea filter and place into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Bring 2 cups of filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil. Immediately pour boiled water over filter into teapot or heat-resistant pitcher. Infuse 3-7 minutes. Remove filter and sweeten tea with ½ cup sugar if desired. Add 2 cups of filtered or freshly drawn water to a serving pitcher. Pour in prepared tea and mix well. Add 2 cups ice and stir. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
Measure four teaspoons of tea leaves into a tea filter and place inside a clean glass jar or small pitcher. Position filter so that the tea leaves will be submerged and the top hangs over the side of the jar or pitcher so that leaves do not spill out once water is added. Pour four cups of filtered or freshly drawn water over the filter. Cover with lid or plastic wrap. Refrigerate 8-12 hours (or overnight). *Cold-infused tea has higher levels of antioxidants, less tannins and less caffeine. To serve this tea hot, simply pour the cold-infused tea into a saucepan over medium heat and gently warm to desired temperature.
Because this is a black tea, Paris in a Teacup may be infused a second time, although flavor will be lighter, using either traditional infusing methods or cold-infusion.
Store Paris in a Teacup Black Tea in a cool, dry place away from bright light.
