Black Metallic

Sips by August Uncommon
Back to Top

Why you’ll love this tea

The aroma of darkly seductive violet flowers fills the air. In the first sip purple flowers meet dark elderberry and ripe blackberry. This is a magical black, oolong, and smoked tea blend with rich floral and black berry notes. Berry flavors are deepened by slatey tannins. A faint smokiness lingers in the finish, reminiscent of far-off incense and candle smoke from the smoked lapsang souchong tea. A touch of milk softens the tannins and brightens the berry and floral flavors. An elegant tea for afternoon or with a special dessert. A tea for lovers of violet, dark berries, and incense.

Why you’ll love this brand

From dark and boozy, to bright and dreamy, August is like no tea you’ve ever tasted. Our tea is wild, intense, and radically different. Only Original Blends. Does the world really need another Earl Grey? We were bored of drinking the same old tea every day, so we made our own. Bold, Intense Flavor. Like a great cocktail, our tea leaves a lasting impression. The Best Ingredients. It's easy to see why our tea is better. Our ingredients are top-notch.

A redemption story.

We goblins are here merely to ply our wares, the succulent leaf potions we conjure up in our forest. Come taste, come taste. Inspired by the poem Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti.
