Our Review
In the 1980's John Harney was at the barricades of the tea revolution. When Malachi McCormick hand published (on his tiny press) A Decent Cup of Tea, John fell in with this fellow traveler. Together they did a few tea projects; one was this tea. It has been described as 'a pure and simple tea that is unpretentious and affordable.'
Dry Leaves Simple black tea leaves.
Liquor Dark brown.
Aroma Since this is a blend of simple teas the aroma is muted malt and suggestive of cocoa.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body This British Legacy Tea has a strong, simple body.
Flavors The unpretenious flavors of muted dark honey and unsweetened cocoa. It is perfectly suited for milk (and more than a splash) and sugar.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Malachi McCormick

We created Malachi McCormick – a black tea blend of Assam and Keemun – to honor its namesake, an Irish author and small-press publisher. Though his handmade book "A Decent Cup of Tea" is diminutive, Malachi McCormick's words speak volumes concerning the difficulty of finding well-prepared tea in hotels. "Malachi," as this tea has come to be known among its many fans, has long since become a favorite morning or afternoon cup. The 8 oz and the 4 oz loose tea tins still feature their original hand-drawn label design.

Great every day tea
Average Review:

Simply put, I love this tea. The cocoa from the Keemun really stands out to me (especially when I add a little heavy cream to the cup). It's just a great way to start the day.

Perfect blend for me!
Average Review:

This is a lovely cup of tea! I have tried a few others and I will be purchasing this again. I usually brew this in the afternoon and drink a strong tea (Scottish Morn) at the beginning of the day.

Our everyday and iced tea blend
Average Review:

My wife and I have tried many blends from the Harney's but this is our outright favorite. A couple of spoonfuls into a small for life tea pot and steep it 4 minutes with almost boiling water. I drink it black with a couple of level spoonfuls of sugar and the wife uses half and half. For us its that simple. My wife even uses this to make iced tea. Wouldn't be without it.
