Black tea is by far the most consumed tea in the Western world, and it makes up 90% of the global tea trade volume. The most common black teas are found in places like China, where the methods for making black tea originated. Black Tea is also grown in India which supplies a significant portion of black tea, and in Sri Lanka, the world’s leader in tea production. Black tea actually starts out green, but during the production process, the tea is oxidized and turns black, releasing the tea’s full big-bodied flavor.
Although many people enjoy black tea taken with milk or sugar, you may find some teas labeled “self drinking,” which denotes that this normally powerful tea tastes great alone without the additives. CoffeeAM offers our best-selling loose-leaf Black Teas and popular favorites, such as Earl Grey with Bergamot Oil and the rich and robust English Breakfast Tea blends.
Steep your gourmet tea at the water’s third boil, or when the water is erupting with bubbles. This ensures that the full flavor of each black tea will be released. Steep for 3-5 minutes to your desired strength. Although you will notice a color change, this does not always indicate the flavor. We recommend taste testing during steeping to generate your desired consistency and flavor. Our premium black teas come in many different, loose-leaf blends. Remember, you’ll need a tea infuser for single cups! Enjoy some Black Tea today!
