Monk's Blend



Imagine a light but heady fragrance, wafting you up like incense in a church. Add to that a hint of fruity fantasy, like a young monk’s wandering daydreams during a long night spent in prayer. Mix that with an initial understatement of flavour, a middle note of lavender and berries, and an optional ascent to heaven on the wings of milk and honey, and you have a tea that will inspire lasting devotion.

“Monk’s Blend” is typically a black tea blend flavoured with vanilla and grenadine. There are many varieties of this blend, some have green tea blended with the black, and others have different fruits added to the mix. The traditional blend however is a Ceylon black tea with a moderate amount of grenadine (pomegranate) and just a hint of vanilla. Monk’s Blend is a tea that tastes better with sugar than without.


Full-leaf Ceylon, traditional German Monk’s blend flavour, sunflower.


1 full tsp     8 oz.    212°F      3-5 min

Tried & Tested Tips

  • For a light version of this black tea, steep for the minimal amount of time.

  • For a rich black tea (that can be paired with milk or cream) you may steep for a little longer; the dairy product will help to mute out the bitter taste a little bit and give the brew a creamy taste.

  • Suitable with white sugar, brown sugar, sweetener, honey and maple syrup.
