Oliver Pluff & Company Signature Tea

Oliver Pluff & Company asked the question, 'What teas were thrown in the harbor during the Boston Tea Party?' They researched the tea gardens that supplied the British East India Company in the markets at Canton, China in the 17th and 18th centuries then recreated those blends. We'd love to share a cup of history with you!

Earl Grey
Black Tea blend with a distinctive flavor and aroma derived from the addition of oil extracted from the rind of the bergamot orange, a fragrant citrus fruit. Earl Grey was introduced in England in the early 1800's, having been presented by an envoy on his return from China. The recipe was discovered and went into production by the 1830's, and was named after 2nd Earl Grey - British Prime Minister in the 1830's.
Ingredients: Black tea leaves, bergamot

English Breakfast
Popularized by Queen Victoria, English Breakfast is a hearty black tea blend which is complemented by milk and sugar. Created by an American tea merchant in 1843, the blend originally used Chinese teas. Later blenders use tea from gardens across the British Empire, including Darjeeling and Assam (India), and British Ceylon (Sri Lanka). The British East India Company reintroduced and imported English Breakfast to America. This blend harkens back to the original blend and is a combination of teas from China, India and Sri Lanka.
Ingredients: Black tea leaves

Masala Chai
Masala Chai, literally "mixed-spice tea," originated in India, but has become a favorite in tea and coffee houses worldwide. Spicy and strong black tea blend. Served hot or cold, but always creamy and puckeringly sweet. Chai is also sometimes called "spiced black tea." For this item we have placed our amazing Masala Chai Tea in a non-GMO, plant-based Non-Woven, fully biodegradable teabag for your convenience.
Ingredients: black tea, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom

Peppermint
Caffeine-free herbal tea. Peppermint steeps to become a lightly sweet, crisp, aromatic, and very refreshing herbal tea. Jonas Hanway, an 18th century British author, derided tea for its "sundry evils" and extolled herbal tea as an alternative. Peppermint was first classified in 1753, and was grown in colonial American gardens.
