From the artful timing of the brew to the blossoming aroma to the warmth of the cup in your hand, tea drinkers know that a great cup of tea is a full sensory experience, just like listening to NPR programming. So when the purveyors of Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Tea approached NPR wanting to create an exclusive blend for us, it seemed like the perfect fit! After all, just like our in-depth reporting, you can’t rush tea. We know that when it comes to news, everyone has varied tastes, yet in the end, just like tea, quality is really what matters most. And of course as any listener knows, a great NPR story can cause you to stop and consider, pause in your daily rush and take a breath-- just like a great cup of tea any time of the day.
So with all of that as background, we are proud to present Level Kettle Black Tea, a robust blend of the finest Indian and Chinese black teas, grown, picked and processed using traditional methods and blended and packaged exclusively for NPR by Andrews & Dunham. Locally blended near Washington, DC, this 4.4 ounce tin features packaging designed in the Twin Cities that celebrates the most important comparison: just like a great cup of tea, anytime is a good time for NPR. So put on the kettle, grab your favorite public radio mug (I know you have one!), and enjoy your favorite NPR programming with a fine cup of Level Kettle Black Tea!
Charles and Erik started this Damn Fine Tea company because they love a good cup of tea. They love the romance of tea and its rich history. They love the way tea looks and smells, and how no two cups are ever the same. They love that tea might be the healthiest beverage we’ll ever drink. But most of all, they love tea because it tastes great.
Damn Fine Tea is sold loose, not in tea bags. It comes in a handsome metal container filled with fragrant, dried leaves. If you’re new to loose tea, be sure to pick up a tea straining device. These teas are orthodox, meaning that the leaves were grown, picked, and processed using traditional methods and processed mostly by hand.
The labels on every tin of Damn Fine Tea are designed-and at times hand-printed -by Aesthetic Apparatus.
