Black Tea

Black-Tea

In black tea the leaf of the Camilla Sinensis (the tea plant) is completely oxidized, resulting in the black color. We offer black tea of different origins and in different qualities. There is something for everyone. We are regularly asked for Orange Pekoe, which is typically an indication for a certain quality of Indian tea. You recognize the Orange Pekoe by the abbreviation OP in the name of the tea.

The real tea aficionados talk about Orange Pekoe, Tippy, Flowery and more. Look at the bottom of the page to see what this "secret" language means.

Every order of loose leaf tea is packed to order.
