The Unique Qualities of Black Tea from Around the World

In addition to teas from the larger tea-growing areas, we offer a selection of black teas from lesser-known regions such as Nepal, Sikkim, Kenya, Ruanda, Columbia and Vietnam. These teas are just that little bit different to some of the more common growing areas which makes them very interesting if you wanted to try something out of the ordinary.  The array of different tastes available is unique!

 

Harvesting and Production

Most black teas follow a similar process when being produced. In certain teas there may be slight differences but generally at least 3 steps will be carried out. These Include:

  • Withering: Moisture is removed from the leaves by having air blown over them.   
  • Rolling: Tea leaves are rolled and twisted, usually with a machine. This act releases enzymes within the leaf that react with the oxygen in the air and lead to the oxidation of the leaf and therefore the change of colour from green to shades of brown.
  • Fermentation: Considered the most important step, the leaves are laid out and the temperature triggers fermentation within the leaf. It is important to monitor the temperature and humidity in this step as one mistake could affect the flavour and the final outcome of the tea.

How to Brew Black Tea

Whether you want to use the loose leaves or try a tea bag infusion, the standard process is the same.

Brewing Black Teas:

  1. Boil some freshly poured cold water
  2. Place the tea leaves in a tea strainer
  3. Pour the hot water over the leaves
  4. Steep the tea for the appropriate amount of time
  5. Strain the tea
  6. Add a dash of milk to taste, sweeten if required
  7. Sit back and enjoy!
