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.


Black tea.

1 Briskness

2 Aroma
 Details: In the 1980's, John Harney was at the barricades of the tea revolution. When Malachi McCormick published (on his tiny press) A Decent Cup of Tea, John fell in love 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.
 Flavors: The unpretenious flavors of muted dark honey and unsweetened cocoa. It is perfectly suited for milk (and more than a splash) and sugar.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Medium-bodied. As this is a British Legacy Tea, the body is strong yet simple.
 Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 212¬ļ
