Indian Black Tea

Some of the most rich teas on the planet, Indian black teas are as flavorful as they are delicate. Choose from a wide variety of loose leaf organic and conventional Assam, Sikkim, Nilgiri, Darjeeling and Himalayan black teas.

Himalayan teas are a great alternative to expensive single-estate Darjeelings. While they are not grown within the Darjeeling district itself, Himalayan teas exhibit the same light, refreshing flavor as do the teas from their more prestigious neighbors.
