Chinese Black Tea
Chinese black tea is grown in the southern regions of China. It is typically mild, with a deep, earthy flavour. And, because its leaves are so carefully handcrafted, Chinese black tea is celebrated for its looks, as well as its taste.
The Chinese first started manufacturing tea in the 17th Century, when producers realised that drying, fermenting and firing the tea leaf preserved it in better condition for exportation. Chinese black tea continues to be produced predominately for export, with the Chinese themselves favouring Chinese green tea and oolong tea over black tea varieties.
