Black Teas

Black tea is a type of tea that is more heavily oxidized than white, green or oolong teas. This prolonged oxidation process results in a tea that is generally stronger, darker and has a higher caffeine content.

Our teas are hand-processed after harvest and then placed in a temperature and humidity controlled room to oxidize. At this time, other ingredients can be added to enhance the flavor of the tea. For example, our Dragon Eyes tea is allowed to oxidize in proximity with longan fruit. As the leaves oxidize, the leaves take on the aroma and subtle flavor of the fruit. In addition to prolonging the shelf life of the tea, the longer oxidation time allows for a wide variety of distinct flavors and aromas across a collection of black teas. After oxidation, the leaves are flash roasted to help seal in the flavor and aroma of the tea.

Although green tea generally is regarded as the healthy alternative to coffee, black tea also has health benefits such as anti-oxidants and flavonoids, which can boost your immune system and reduce high blood pressure. We have a diverse collection of black teas representing a wide variety of flavors to fit any preference.
