This tea blend is inspired by the signature Onyx Delight latte, a beverage normally made with espresso, milk, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon. Enjoy this tea blend interpretation, with a single estate Dian Hong black tea from Yunnan province, China. This region is commonly known as “the motherland of tea.” The incorporation of rolled oat lends a creamy texture, while the cinnamon pieces and natural vanilla and honey flavorings bring a comforting sweetness.

The Onyx Delight latte is arguably the most classic Onyx drink on our menu, and definitely the most popular latte drink at all Onyx Coffee Lab locations. It’s designed to be sweet, approachable, welcoming and simply delightful. Our team is excited to share this adapted version through a tea blend that is designed to evoke the same delight. Highly encouraged to enjoy plain or with a steamed milk of your choice.

ABOUT THIS BLEND The base tea for this creative blend is a single estate Dian Hong black tea, from the Yunnan Province in Southwest China, often called “The Motherland of Tea”. It’s made from the leaves of the Yunnan Big Leaf (Da Ye) Tea Trees. Dianhong is often characterized by the amount of fine leaf buds, or "golden tips," present in the dried tea. When brewed, this tea is known for a cup with a sweet and gentle aroma. The organic oat component that lends this blend a creamy texture is processed from a gluten-free oat that was steamed, flattened, air-dried then cooled, while the cinnamon pieces were simply cut & sifted. Lastly, the addition of the all-natural vanilla & honey flavors bring the signature element of sweetness, balance and delight.

BLACK TEA Black tea is oxidized more than oolong, white and green teas, meaning that after plucking and withering, the tea leaves are rolled, crushed, chopped, or otherwise bruised to spur oxidation to 90-100%. Temperature, humidity and other factors affecting oxidation are tightly controlled before drying. The resulting brew will be stronger in flavor and usually a deep reddish color. Many Asian countries name this a “red tea” after the color of the tea liquor after steeping.

MORE COFFEES FROM THIS ROASTER

It was some years ago that we Jon and Andrea, began to dream of serving a sweet, black cup of coffee to our customers in Arkansas. This coffee, the mythical bridge between the blended chocolate drink and a strong black cup, needed to combine the delicate flavors only present when coffee is grown and processed with love and care, roasted to enhance but not mask flavor, and brewed to highlight those flavors. This is how Onyx Coffee Lab was born in October of 2012.

Our mission is pretty simple: to source and serve the best coffees in the world. Perhaps this is really ambitious, but we believe it’s pretty simple. Customers want to taste differences in coffee, not only on the black coffee level, but also when espresso and milk are poured together, and on another level, when coffee is treated as a culinary item and paired with beverages and food items that you wouldn’t expect.

The best business practice that Onyx Coffee Lab has and strives to continue is to be an owner-driven business. The difference between an owner run café, restaurant, roaster, retail shop, and so on is almost always evident in customer service, quality of product and atmosphere. It’s no easy task to translate passion for award winning coffee into a well-run business. We think it’s a carefully constructed balance of demand for excellence, passion, heart, and recognizing when we need someone to step into a leadership role. Every cup of freshly roasted coffee from Onyx has been carefully curated by us- from the very beginning with the farmer, through the roastery and to our customers. Without all of those hands, we are nothing, and we are there over each step in the process, demanding, sipping, loving, encouraging, instructing. We are Onyx Coffee Lab.
