A Guide To Other Black Tea

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.

One of the most unusual black teas is probably our Organic Colombian Black Tea. This tea comes with a lovely chocolaty character. Known for a little longer are the Golden Nepal Typ Maloom from the highlands of Nepal, and Milima – one of few orthodox produced black teas from Kenya.


How Are Other Black Teas Produced? 

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.

Our Other Black teas

We offer a wide range of many diverse types of other black teas from all over the world! From Columbia, Africa, The Himalayas, Vietnam and many more interesting places! The array of different tastes available is unique!

Some of our teas include:

  • Ronnefeldt Organic Columbian Black Tea - Fine, mild black tea with nuances of honey and fruit. Despite the soft character this tea is still expressive and full-flavoured. The tea grows in parts of northwest Colombia called 'Departamento del Coco'. The ground is rich in minerals and together with the proximity to the equator which provides an average of 4h of sunshine per day, allows the growing of this truly special and rare tea.
  • Ronnefeldt Milima - One of the very few teas from Kenya to be traditionally produced using the orthodox method. Grown in the Kenyan Highlands this tea has distinctive fruity and spicy notes.
  • Ronnefeldt Sikkim Temi - A delicate yet tangy specialty of Sikkim's most famous tea garden. This tea has the character of a fine Darjeeling and a little spice of Assam.

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!
