Product Details

For our Jamaican Butter Rum tea, our master blenders have taken fine Ceylon, Indian and Chinese black teas and combined them with natural rum, sweet butterscotch, and creamy caramel flavors for a rich, aromatic and slightly sweet dessert tea. For a special taste treat, enjoy with a splash of milk and some sugar.

The Ceylon tea for this blend is from Sri Lanka, a small island off the southern tip of India. Ceylon tea is grown from sea level to altitudes exceeding 7,000 feet. The best Ceylon teas are harvested at altitudes above 4,000 feet. Here the bushes grow more slowly and yield far less, not to mention being more difficult to harvest. Most high grown Ceylon teas come from gardens so steep that the newly picked green leaves must be conveyed to the estate factory by means of aerial ropeways.

The Chinese tea in this blend is a Keemun from Anhui province. Keemun tea, named after Quimen precinct in southern Anhui province, became a key component in English Breakfast Tea blends. China Keemun has narrow, tightly twisted black leaves that brew a brilliant reddish-brown cup with a light, toasty flavor.

The Indian tea is a wonderful, robust Assam. On the border of China, Burma and Bangladesh, one hundred and twenty miles to the east of Darjeeling, lies the Assam Valley in India. The rugged Brahmaputra River bisects the valley and floods every year during the monsoon season when the heat and humidity turn the entire region into a giant greenhouse. It's a challenging environment due to the rough weather and flooding, but it's a splendid place to grow tea. The climate, the soil, and the indigenous tea plants give Assam teas their characteristic full-bodied strong taste and dark liquor. The best Assam teas are known for their unique, distinctly pleasant malty character.

Save it for Coffee

How can I describe this tea...... If Captain Morgan used a sweaty sock to brew his tea.

No.. but close...:)

Ok seriously this tea is not for me. I enjoy herbal flavored teas and some black tea with natural spices. This had too much of an artificial flavor. It does not pair well with tea in my opinion. You can put this on any type of tea and it will all taste the same. It masks the tea taste.

This type of flavor is best suited for coffees

If you dare to try.... I would recommend starting with the smallest amount before you commit long term.

A bit strong...

I'm a rum drinker. I LOVE rum...however, all I got in this tea WAS rum. I feel like the other notes were lost in the strong rum flavor. It has a strong flavor AND smell of rum. I was looking for the smoothness of the butter and never found it.

This tea is a must have. It is awesome! I savor this, every time I have it. Frequent buyer. Thank you "Stash" for this flavorful blend! Wish it had the option of single serve bags, but loose is fine. Try it once and you'll order again & again!

Amazing

The flavor of this tea is amazingly decadent. I hadn't expected the run flavor to be so strong. Fabulous ... but not really right for breakfast.
