What is Black Tea?
23 Dec, 2016

A quick overview of black tea

Black tea leaves

Black teas are made with fully oxidised (or fermented) leaves from the tea bush. This makes for a stronger and darker ‘classically British’ brew, often served with milk.

Quality artisan black teas from India and China offer a delicious gourmet taste experience – nothing like the low-quality ‘builders’ teas’ produced on vast, industrialised tea estates.

Explore the rich and malty Assam teas, the more delicate and floral Darjeeling teas, or the afternoon tea favourite, Earl Grey, which is black tea scented with real Bergamot citrus oil.

Find out more about Green tea and its reputed health benefits.
