About Black Tea
The world is your oyster. Each black tea from each different country has a completely different taste profile and we have selected some of the world’s best black teas.
Black teas are the most highly oxidised of the teas and make great bases for blends. There are so many different varieties and grades of black teas that you can use teas from many different countries; the opportunities are endless. The most famous black tea blends in the world are English Breakfast and Earl Grey.
Black tea is usually 100% oxidized and therefore results in beautiful notes of honey, malt, chocolate, toast, caramel etc. Each black tea is unique to the terroir and our selection includes our own signature breakfast style blend as well as our own Earl Grey style.
