Black tea is grown and processed all over the world in varying geographies and climates. We mainly source our Black Tea from India Assam region. India’s Assam region is the largest tea-growing region in the world. The rainy, tropical climate produces a tea known for its bold and malty characteristics that stand up well to milk and sugar. We also blend Ceylon Black Tea from Sri Lanka the 2nd largest producer of tea in the world and Pu Erh Black Tea originating from Yunnan region of China.
Generally, black tea is stronger, bolder and richer than green tea. A brewed black tea can range in colour from amber to red to dark brown, and its flavour profile can range from savoury to sweet, depending on how long it was oxidized and how it was it was heat processed. Black tea typically has more astringency and bitterness than green tea, but if brewed correctly it should be smooth and flavourful.
