Named after Colombia�s ancient Calima Culture of the high western Andes Mountains, Calima Black has a finely rolled, whole dry leaf. The brewed tea is quite dark - with a clear, deep amber. It is gently astringent and lightly fruity with sweet notes reminiscent of raisins. This is an ideal morning breakfast tea.
