• We only use natural flavors, giving a clean true taste with no chemical aftertaste
What do a Nuclear Rainbow, a Canadian Zombie, the King of Denmark, and Abe's Tropical Night in Hell have in common? That's right, they are all drinks made with Grenadine. In fact, there are over 500 drinks mixed with the blood-red syrup made from pomegranates, red currants, and honey.
The name Grenadine is derived from "Granada," the Spanish word for pomegranate. It was the Spanish who introduced Pomegranate trees to California in 1769 by transplanting them from the Caribbean.
No one is sure of the who, when, or why's regarding the invention of Grenadine syrup but we are sure of one thing: When added to a high grown Ceylon tea the results are amazing. This flavor of this tea is sweet with hints of honey.
Try it over ice on a hot day and you won't be disappointed. The only thing missing is a fitting name like The Fuzzy Magnum or Spooky Juice. If you think of one, let us know!
What type of tea do we use, how do we flavor the tea and why do we use natural flavors?
Firstly...we only use high grown teas from the top 3 tea growing regions of Sri Lanka - Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula and Uva. These three high-grown districts produce flavorful teas that have classic "Ceylon" tea character which is noted by floral bouquet and flavor notes, touches of mild astringency, bright coppery color and, most importantly - perfect for use as the base tea of our flavored teas. (We have tested teas from various other origins around the world as base stock for our flavored teas, but none of these teas made the grade. We may pay more for high grown Ceylons, but the taste is worth it).
Dimbula and the western estates of Nuwara Eliya have a major quality peak during Jan/Feb, whereas Uva and the eastern estates of Nuwara Eliya have their peak in July/Aug. This "dual peak period" allows us to buy the best for our flavored tea blends several times during the year, ensuring top quality and freshness.
Secondly...we use flavoring oils not crystals to give the tea drinker an olfactory holiday before indulging in the liquid tea delicacy.
Thirdly...we specify natural flavors. High quality tea tastes good and natural flavors do not mask the natural taste of the high grown Ceylon tea. (The norm for many making flavored tea is to use overpowering artificial flavors which can be used to hide lower quality tea). Natural flavors do not leave an aftertaste giving the tea a clean and true character. It should be noted that natural flavors tend to be somewhat "soft" and the flavors slightly muted, but for many this is a refreshing change and one of the desired attributes of our naturally flavored teas.
Now you can sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labor (or should we say flavor) knowing that we have formulated the best flavored teas that are available.
