Product Description

Doke Black Fusion Tea is unique in that it has almost the flavor profile of many fine dark-roasted oolongs teas. When brewed it has an amber liquor. This tea possesses a rich aroma and yields a golden infusion with a subtle and buttery flavor. From my personal perspective, this Doke Black Fusion Tea seems a fusion of Darjeeling and Assam flavor profiles. All in all, one of the best flavor profiles I have run across in Indian teas. 

How to Infuse:

Gongfu style: Use 2 grams (1 teaspoon dried tea leaves) of Doke Black Fusion Tea for each 8 fl. oz. of water in your favorite teapot or infuser. Use bottled drinking water for best flavor, heat to a rolling boil, and steep for approximately 1 minute. Leaves may be infused at least 7 times. You may need to gradually increase the steeping time with successive brews. I generally increase the time from 15 to 30 seconds for the next round.

Teapot style: Use 2 grams (1 teaspoon dried tea leaves) of Doke Black Fusion Tea for each 8 fl. oz. of water in your favorite teapot or infuser. Use bottled drinking water for best flavor, heat to a rolling boil, and steep for approximately 3-5 minutes. Strain into cups. Add milk and sugar, lemon, honey, or whatever you generally use with a strong black tea. If you prefer to drink it straight, steep no longer than 3 minutes, probably only 2 minutes.

These are suggested steeping instructions. We encourage you to experiment and share your own brewing methods as you continue to grow in the tea culture. If you're new to tea, this is a good way to start.

  • A wonderful tasty black tea.

    by Bruce Aurand – February 12, 2015

    This had no astringency at all.... very smooth, slightly Malty, not as strong a malt as Scottish Breakfast, a very pleasant tea to sip on. Worked well iced but of course that weakend the flavor with the melting ice but made for a very nice "lighter" tasting tea according to my wife's observations. She really liked it. It smells wonderful too.. and tastes just the same as it smells if you can imagine that.
    You won't regret having tried this one. I know I sure don't. This is a tea to judge others by in my opinion.
