Whether gazing through the red cliffs of a canyon, or lost in a forest of towering grey stones, the sun’s radiance and warmth finds you. Grown in the cradle of tea, Sunstone is a breakfast tea unlike any other, which is why it sits at the heart of our collection. Each season, we combine a selection of black tea terroirs from Southwestern China, melding them for a sturdy and satisfying base to a morning—or whatever time it finds you. The infusion is full-bodied and always low in astringency. The taste strikes a dynamic chord between breakfast tea boldness and savorable complexity. Notes of honey, dark cocoa and apricot.
