Roasted Chestnut Black Tea. . A HandBlended Tea from Vida Pour Tea. . . . .

This tea is one of those that transports me back to a specific place and time & it will always hold a special place in my heart. I LOVE big, fat, stringent teas and Roasted Chestnut Black tea from Vida Pour Tea in Greensboro, NC is my one true love. It is the standard by which I judge other fat teas…

Roasted Chestnut Black is a visually simple tea, but the smell of this tea alone is eyebrow raising and giggle-worthy. It has a dark, nutty flavor that rivals coffee and the most robust of hot chocolates. It stands up to milk and cream but is really just incredible on its own. I even used a little bit of this to blend with a chocolate tea that I have to really round it out.

Fun fact: the owner of Vida Pour Tea blends this herself and it is her best seller. If you’re ever traveling up or down I-85, this is a MUST stop for you! She has several of her own blends, plus decadent baked goodies and homemade gifts from local bakers & artisans. Vida Pour Tea is every tea lovers’ dream tea shop!
