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.

Details 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 Temp 212° Fº
