Tea leaves are originally green in colour. Black tea gets the black colour as a result of the tea leaves being allowed to fully oxidise during the production process. In China, black tea is called ‘red tea’ because of the colour of the tea infusion.
Black tea is one of the most popular teas in the western culture. Enjoy a wide range of black teas that vary in flavours from strong, spicy, robust to malty, floral and sweet.
Black tea is a popular choice as a tea base for ice teas and blends such as EARL GREY & MASALA CHAI
