INFORMATION:

How seriously does Germany take its gingerbread? Seriously enough that in 1643, the city of Nuremberg recognized the profession of baking gingerbread (known in German as Lebkuchen), and created an official guild entitled the "League of Lebkuchen Bakers". Two years later, in 1645, the league went on to develop a code of strict guidelines commercial bakers had to follow in order to legally bake and sell their creations in local markets. Suffice it to say, they take their gingerbread extremely seriously.

If you've ever tasted German gingerbread, you'll quickly understand why it ever demanded such scrutiny. You'll also understand why it continues to demand such hoopla. Simply put, it's wunderbar. To this day, many bakeries in Germany guard their gingerbread recipes, practically on pain of death.

Luckily, our Master Taster was able to persuade a Nuremburg baker to provide him with his list of ingredients we were used to develop the all-natural flavor for this exquisite Flavored Black German Gingerbread tea. Bright in the cup and brimming with spicy gingerbread notes, this tea will have you saying ja bitte (yes, please) in no time.

HOT BREWING METHOD:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
