Chinese Black Tea

Chinese black tea has a pleasant, full-bodied flavor and roughly half the caffeine content of a cup of coffee. Depending on the variety, Chinese black tea can range from smooth to sweet to smoky. Lapsang Souchongs have a lower caffeine content and a deeply smoky flavor, while Yunnan teas are smooth and strong. Some Chinese black teas may be mixed with fruits or flower buds to add sweetness and depth of flavor. Our loose leaf chinese tea comes in a variety of conventional and organic flavors.
