Black Loose Leaf Tea

Black tea is the most popular tea variety in the world and has remained a well-loved breakfast drink in the West over the past 100 years. Black teas undergo fermentation or oxidisation during the production process. This makes the leaves become darker in colour and imparts a rich, full-bodied liquor with an astringent flavour profile.

All our black loose leaf teas have gone through a strenuous selection process and offer the highest quality flavour experience. We work closely with producers to keep up to date with the seasonal climatic conditions and production processes. These are the key aspects that impact the quality of the teas. Therefore, we are able to provide consistently high-quality teas to our customers. We believe that traditional, orthodox tea processing techniques produce great tasting teas. This is why we exclusively use premium orthodox teas in all our classic blends.
