Black Teas


Welcome To Our Black Tea Offerings!

To produce black tea, the tea leaves are plucked by hand and then left out in the sun until they are pliable enough to be rolled without the leaf splitting. The leaves are then put into a mechanical tumbler and rolled. This process causes the leaves’ juices to react with the air and then oxidize. The green leaves turn black and are then fired in huge drying ovens to produce the final product. Black tea is the most common tea consumed in this country and is cultivated in China, India, Sri Lanka, Africa and Indonesia.
