Star Dust Black Tea was one of our most popular tea flavors among our tea parlor guests. This delicately spiced black tea has a smooth creamy finish. The addition of silver sprinkles make a delightful sparkle on the surface of the tea. You’ll be over the moon for this tea.

As a black tea, Star Dust contains medium to high levels of caffeine. It also contains high levels of antioxidants from the black tea leaves and cinnamon.

Star Dust Black Tea is excellent served hot or iced. Adding milk and sugar, or preferred sweetener, to taste is optional, but brings out the sweet and creamy notes of this tea.

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.

Iced Tea
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.

Cold-infusion Method*
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, Star Dust may be infused a second time, although flavor will be lighter, using either traditional infusing methods or cold-infusion.

Store Star Dust Black Tea in a cool, dry place away from bright light.
