Black tea (Italy), bergamot rind, natural flavours, mallow flowers
An exceptional blend made with Italian black tea grown in Val d'Ossola, near Lake Maggiore, in the Premosello plantation, the second largest plantation in Europe after that of the Azores and the first in Italy capable of guaranteeing an appreciable and stable production of tea. At Premosello no chemical products are used, neither to fertilize nor to protect the plants from parasites or diseases; weeding is still done by hand and with the technique of straw mulching. From the harvesting, traditionally done by hand with selection of only the apical buds and the first two tender leaves underneath, to the still artisanal processing, everything is entrusted to the skill and sensitivity to produce a completely natural tea with perfectly defined characteristics of body, fragrance, aroma and flavor.
Chocolate fudge, cake and dessert. Dark chocolate. Nice with apple pie, scones and shortbreads. It goes well with cheese like herbed goat cheese and ham sandwiches.
