Black Tea

Fully oxidized black tea is the most popular type of tea on the American market and is available in a wide variety of flavors, which vary depending on soil quality, elevation, and time of harvest. Single-estate loose leaf teas provide the connoisseur with an array of choices that cannot be found with prepackaged teabags. Black teas can be enjoyed all day-- from a morning pick-up to an evening indulgence after dinner. Choose from a variety of naturally flavored black teas and classics like Earl Grey, Darjeeling, Assam, and Ceylon.
