American teamaker Steven Smith travels the globe in search of the best botanicals – from premium tea leaves to aromatic herbs. Ingredients are carefully hand blended at Smith Teamaker, his shop in Portland, Oregon, then packed into specially designed sachets that release the full flavor and aroma of the whole-leaf teas when steeped. Exceptional Black Iced Tea is a highly invigorating melange of full-leaf Assam, Darjeeling and Ceylon black teas. This blend makes a truly exceptional iced tea with a brisk, refreshing and slightly fruity flavor. After steeping, top off with cold filtered water, stir and serve over ice.
