Loose Leaf Black Tea

Aromatic, naturally sweet, smooth and full bodied, fruity, malty, chocolate, hints of smoke - all are apt descriptions of Chinese black teas. Given that the Chinese prefer their black teas unblended and unscented, our blacks reflect this. They are made with a lighter touch in the oxidizing step to preserve the nuanced tastes and natural sweetness of the varietals. We source our black teas in various provinces and their body, strength, aroma and flavor depend on the bush cultivar, farming methods, elevation, time of harvest, oxidation and firing process.
