    black tea

    Black tea, sometimes known as English Breakfast tea or Red tea, is the most commonly consumed tea in the world. We only sell full-leaf black tea from Yunnan, Anhui and the legendary Lapsang farm in the Wu Yi Mountains. In fact, black tea originated in the Wu Yi Mountains. These teas are finally being acknowledged in China as genuinely top quality teas in their own right. They are hand-picked and laboriously hand processed, achieving the exact amount of oxidation to produce the unique rich, robust black tea flavor and beautiful amber red color. Black tea is usually taken with milk, sugar or other flavorings (a tradition that was initiated to hide poor taste!) but we recommend enjoying our teas pure. You’ll never look at black tea the same way again.
