The Library

Malty Black Tea

Rated 4.6 out of 5
Based on 176 reviews

Tastes Like: buttered toast, brown bread, almond
Feels Like: morning in the library

The Library was previously known as Leatherbound. Same tea, new name!

Picture the dark wooden walls of a library lined with rows of books, like the iconic Long Room of Trinity College in Dublin. There is a seductive atmosphere that is both austere and comforting. The bready aroma of this tea is complemented by the unique nuttiness of caraway. This high grade black assam tea has a velvety mouthfeel and rich flavor. Hints of cocoa and sweet almond aromas enliven the mix, like the occasional contemporary novel whose glossy cover pops against the worn literary classics. A drop of milk tips the flavor towards a smooth creamy stout. Like sinking into a stately club chair to ponder the pages between your hands, this tea invites reflection. This makes a rich breakfast tea, and a great afternoon tea with shortbread or cherry scones.

Extremely Almond

I have a love hate relationship with almond flavored items. This tea starts out robust and strong, but ultimately leaves you with a flat almond aftertaste. I’ve experienced this with cakes and pastries that have almond flavors as well so maybe it is just me. Not a bad tea, but you better like almond!

Smells fabulous!

I love the aroma when brewing this tea! Has a hearty, almost hazelnut fragrance. It is pretty strong and malty in taste, as described. Adding milk and sugar brings out the flavor in a different way. As someone who is studying library science, this is a fun variety to pair when working on class assignments!
