Applauded by tea enthusiasts for many years, Boston Harbour Tea is an exceptional blend of the finest hand-picked black teas from Sri Lanka and Darjeeling. Teas grown in Sri Lanka are know as Ceylon teas and have a distinct taste that makes for the perfect afternoon tea. Darjeeling teas are grown in the high-altitude foothills of the Himalayas.
Due to the unique climate in the Darjeeling region, teas grown in this part of India tend to have a stimulating taste and aroma, setting them apart from other black teas. When brewed, Boston Harbour Tea produces a golden cup with a sweet aroma and a brisk flavor that is sure to please.
Each resealable bag contains 4 oz. of our signature loose leaf tea blend and will make approximately 40 cups of tea!
I regularly purchased this tea several decades ago. It was quite different, with very small, curled leaves and a more distinctive flavor. It came in a tin. I would have given it the five stars.
Boston Harbour Black Tea is a great tea for any time of day. It has a place in my heart due to my first cup was tasted in Boston! I was visiting my son and family at school so it has emotional ties for me as well.
It is a very nice mild black tea that is delicious with just a little milk/or alternative of your choice!
My father purchased some for me for Christmas two years ago, and did the same the following Christmas. I am by no means a Darjeeling fan, but Boston Harbour (which is Darjeeling) is exceptional. My tea shelf is not complete without it. In addition to the flavour, it brews in only three minutes, contrary to the five required by most other black teas, so Boston Harbour is my choice on days I'm in a rush. I only wish the loose leaf was available in greater quantity units, or that I could simply get refill bags; discarding the tin really is a pity.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take for my order to ship?
We strive to ship orders within 2-3 days of receipt. However, due to the handcrafted nature of our products, combined with inventory limitations, some orders may take longer to ship. If there is a significant delay in shipping your order, we will contact you directly with details.
Are your teas cultivated naturally? Are they Organic?
All our teas are sourced from tea estates, suppliers and importers that we have personally worked with for decades and many for generations! We only purchase teas that have been cultivated naturally, devoid of pesticides and growth agents.
Teas that have the term “Organic” in the products name have gone through additional certification by the country or origin and USFDA. Even though all our products are natural, we are unable to list them as Organic unless they have gone through these steps. Sometimes, this certification can be costly and time consuming for growers. Each country has different regulations, so many sell the teas to us without this extra labeling.
How long does tea stay fresh?
If sealed properly and stored away from extreme hot/cold temps and moisture, tea will stay as flavorful as the day you bought it, even after 18 months.
How long should I brew my tea?
Tea brewing times and water temperature can vary between tea varieties. Please consult this link to find the best method for your tea!
