How strong is The Best Caddy of the Emperor?

This tea has a powerful character and can certainly be brewed a little longer. When you let this tea steep a little longer, you will notice that the flavors become even more intense and the tea gets even more depth. However, due to the complex taste, the tea remains well balanced and the bitterness does not dominate.

If you let the tea steep for a short time, around 2-3 minutes, the taste is already quite intense. If you let the tea steep for longer, for example 4-5 minutes, the taste will become even more powerful and intense.

It is therefore a tea that you can drink both pure and with a splash of milk, depending on your personal taste preference.

It is important to note that The Best Caddy of the Emperor is a tea that lends itself well to multiple infusions. This means that you can use the tea leaves several times to make new cups of tea. With each new infusion, the taste will be slightly different, but still full and rich in flavour.

Thanks to its powerful taste, the Best Caddy of the Emperor can also be combined well with spicy dishes and savory snacks.

The Best Caddy of the Emperor

The Best Caddy of the Emperor is a black tea that originates in China, India and Sri Lanka. The Lapsang Souching gives this tea a distinctive smoky flavor and a deep character of smoke, tobacco, wood and cocoa.

This tea is ideal for people who find the smoky taste of Tarry Lapsang Souchong a little too strong.

Lapsang Souchong is a tea produced in China. After picking, the tea leaves are dried in bamboo baskets over burning coniferous or cypress wood. This gives this tea the characteristic smoky taste. The name 'Souchong' refers to the fourth and fifth leaves of the tea plant. These leaves are generally found on the underside of the tea plant. They are coarser and contain less aromatic elements than the younger leaves.

It is a perfect tea for those who like strong and powerful flavours!

Frequently Asked Questions about The Best Caddy of the Emperor

Do you have a question about using The Best Caddy of the Emperor? Below we have answered the most frequently asked questions for you.

The Best Caddy of the Emperor is a special tea composed of three different teas: Lapsang Souchong, Assam and Ceylon. Lapsang Souchong originates from the Wuyi Mountains in China's Fujian province, where the tea is smoked over pinewood fires. This gives the tea its characteristic smoky flavor and aroma. Assam tea grows in the northeastern region of India, where the warm and humid climate ensures a full and powerful taste. Ceylon tea comes from Sri Lanka and has a light and refined taste with subtle citrus notes.

It is the art of the tea master to mix these three teas in the right way, so that a perfectly balanced blend is created. The result is The Best Caddy of the Emperor, a tea that tastes delicious and has a rich history. Whether you enjoy a cup of tea in the morning or afternoon, this tea is perfect for any time of the day.

Making a perfect cup of this tea is easy, but does require some precision. Here are the steps you need to follow to brew the tea properly:

  1. Bring fresh water to the boil and let it cool down to about 95 degrees Celsius.
  2. Use a teaspoon of tea per cup and add it to a sieve or filter bag.
  3. Place the sieve or filter bag in a teapot or mug.
  4. Pour the hot water over the tea and let it steep for 3-5 minutes, depending on how strong you want the tea.
  5. Remove the sieve or filter bag from the pot or mug and enjoy a delicious cup of The Best Caddy of the Emperor.

To optimally experience the taste of the tea, it is important to bring the water to the right temperature and not to let the tea steep for too long. In this way, the complex and balanced taste of the tea comes into its own.

Yes, the Best Caddy of the Emperor contains caffeine as it is a blend of black teas including Lapsang Souchong, Assam and Ceylon. Known for their high caffeine content, these teas will give you a pick-me-up when you need it. It's important to note that the amount of caffeine in a cup of tea depends on several factors, such as the amount of tea you use, the steep time, and the temperature of the water.

In general, a cup of the Best Caddy of the Emperor contains about 50-60 milligrams of caffeine, which is comparable to a cup of coffee. If you are sensitive to caffeine or would like to reduce your intake, you can shorten the brew time or use less tea per cup.

The Best Caddy of the Emperor generally has a shelf life of about 2 years, provided you store it properly. To preserve the quality and taste of the tea, it is important to store it in a cool, dry and dark place, such as in a sealed tin or our airtight container.

Avoid exposure to direct sunlight and moisture as this can spoil the tea and cause mould. It is also important to keep the tea away from strongly scented foods, as the tea can absorb and take on odors.

If the tea starts to lose its flavor or smells musty over time, it's probably time to buy a new supply.

The Best Caddy of the Emperor contains caffeine, which can contribute to increased alertness and energy, which is why it is often considered a good choice to drink in the morning.

However, there are no hard and fast rules about drinking tea at certain times of the day, as it depends on personal preferences and tolerance to caffeine.

If you are sensitive to caffeine, you may want to avoid this tea just before going to bed. But if you don't have a problem with it, you can certainly enjoy a cup of the Best Caddy of the Emperor for evening tea.
