  • Satsuma Flavored black tea conjures up images of bygone days of ancient Japan, where Samurai, Geisha, and Emperors once ruled. Satsuma was the name of what is now known as the Kagoshima Prefecture on the southern tip of Kyushu Island.  This ancient kingdom is where the Satsuma, (Latin: Citrus reticulata) is believed to have originated.  Sometimes referred to as Satsuma Mandarin, or Satsuma Tangerine, this little fruit has been prized by the people who inhabited the region for centuries.  Orange Pekoe grade leaf from Sri lanka is flavored with natural oils and blended with Calendula petals, White Daisy, Lemon Balm, Cornflower petals, Dried Orange and Marigold for a bright and coppery cup.  This tea is equally delicious served hot or over ice for a truly remarkable iced tea.
