Black tea is the most popular type of tea in North America. Loose leaf or packaged in sachets, black tea is strong and full-bodied hot or iced, with enough caffeine to boost your energy in the morning without leaving you jittery in the afternoon.
• Black tea is often harvested in flushes, where batches of leaves are picked at different times for different flavors
• Some black teas are fermented or smoked for distinctive flavors and nose
• Drinking black tea can help reduce the risk of heart disease and support a healthy immune system
Most black teas are grown in China, India, and Sri Lanka where climate and cultivation techniques combine to produce some of the finest and most fragrant loose-leaf teas in the world. The flavor of black tea can be either delicate or robust, depending on variety, and many are just as delicious iced as they are hot.
Popular varieties of straight black tea include: Assam – malty flavor, bright color; Darjeeling – fruity, floral notes; Ceylon Black Tea – light flavor, crisp aroma; Lapsang Souchong, Chinese – distinctive smoky flavor, dark, fruity, and rich.
