The Unique Qualities of Flavoured Black Tea

Expertly crafted blends include rich black teas perfectly partnered with cocoa; vanilla or rose petals. Creations with winter spices and marzipan will become firm seasonal favourites whilst other varieties such asRonnefeldt Irish Malt are a favourite all year round! 

At Cup of Tea we offer a versatile range of unique black tea compositions! These delicious flavours are sure to excite the taste buds. Tea can be flavoured in a number of ways - from using oils to blending the tea with real fruit pieces. Only ingredients of the highest quality are used for our aromatic flavoured blends.

 

Harvesting and Production

Immediately after picking, the fresh tea leaves start their journey through the five stages of traditional tea production:

Withering: Tea leaves are spread out on large withering racks and fanned with warm air for around 12-18 hours. The leaves loose up to 60% of their moisture and a large amount of their volume.

Rolling: Leaves are placed in rolling machines where rotating discs break open the leaf cells in the tea leaves without destroying them. The liquid in the cells oxidizes with the oxygen in the air and fermentation begins.

Oxidizing (Fermenting): the rolling process sets off fermentation which usually takes around 2-3 hours. The leaves take on a coppery red colour and the tea acquires its characteristic aroma. The process of fermentation determines the flavour of the tea; the shorter the process, the fresher the flavour and the lighter the tea in colour.

Drying: The residual moisture is extracted from the tea at 90C in a multi-level dryer and the oxidised cell juice dries on the leaves. This is when tea darkens and becomes black in colour.

Grading: In the final step the tea is graded into 4 different leaf grades using vibrating sieves. This process produces high quality leaf teas, broken teas, fannings and dust.

 

How to Brew Flavoured Black Tea

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

 

The standard process is as follows:

  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!
