Amba Thieves Tea is a handmade, brisk black tea with a storied past. Years ago, at the Amba Tea Estate, all tea had to go to the owners. However, some ladies plucked the tea and then made a crude and strong black tea in their hut. They were "thieves." This tea willingly accepts milk and sugar. You'll find it lovely and lively.


Black tea.
