Sunstone is Spirit Tea's signature breakfast blend, a selection of multiple black tea terroirs melded for a sturdy, satisfying base to a morning. Full-bodied and low in astringency, Sunstone draws its inspiration primarily from the rich black teas of Southwest China, creating something familiar and yet genre-transcending: brisk enough to stand up to what so ever you put in it brilliant and nuanced enough to be sipped on its own. We think it's the best breakfast tea you'll encounter of course we're a little biased. Notes of cocoa, sweet potato, and black pepper.
