KUURA 2020 'DARK RED' Black Tea

| /


A very far cry from the type of black tea that requires milk fat fortification to stomach. This sun-dried fully-oxidized tea produced from Yunnan wild-type Assamica trees is a generous and infinitely quaffable morning depth-charge or afternoon pick-whom-up. With almost no tannic wallop or biting astringency, it will brew over and over again into a syrupy satisfying decoction with pleasing natural sweetness and faint red fruit overtones. Hard currency to convert any bag-drinker to the richer shades of what black tea can be.

Memo faxed over from Kuura HQ reads as follows:

Brain accelerant. Now in Red.

A decline in KUURACORP® worker productivity lead to an internal corporate audit survey, in which it was found that 11 in 10 KUURACORP® Employees stated they were "suffering from extended withdrawal symptoms from a lack of sun-dried Yunnan black tea.", with many stating "I miss the old hongcha" and "Bring back the old hongcha". To boost worker compliance, er, morale, prompt development of a replacement for the subject of such desires, "Floating Point", was undertaken. KUURACORP® is now pleased to present this long-anticipated production, "Dark Red", so named after the colour of high-powered fluorescent lights sunlight shining through tightly closed eyelids.

Hand-processed, sun-dried black tea ("dian hong") from a pristine forested garden in southern Yunnan, pressed neatly for your hydration pleasure. 

The tea is thick, soft and smooth, with flavours that one could, if necessary, argue in a court of law are reminiscent of 'Berries, honey, and sweet flowers'.
