Black teas are fresh, green leaves, which are first withered after picking, spread out to dry, then crushed by rollers to release the juices. This oxidation process turns the leaves brown. Then they are fired by hot air to dry. The orthodox method of processing twist and breaks the leaf but doesn’t cut it into small pieces. The CTC method of cutting, tearing, and curling chops the tea by machine into tiny particles, which causes the tea to brew quickly for a stronger infusion. Most tea bags use CTC tea. The last part of the process is the sorting and grading of the tea. Black tea became very popular in western culture, because of longer shelf-life, as the clipper ships took many months to transport tea from Asia to Europe.

We offer a variety of high quality, loose leaf black teas from around the world. Each has its own flavor characteristics, aroma, and coloring.
