Because of its full, rich flavor and versatility, black tea is one of the most popular varieties of tea. Black tea’s low caffeine content and mild effect make it the perfect blend of tea for any time of the day.
Even though black tea comes from the same Camellia sinensis plant that both oolong and green tea originate from, the difference lies in the steps involved in processing it.
The making of loose black tea involves withering and then rolling the tea leaves, to be followed by a long period of fermentation. The tea leaves are then fired, resulting in a complex yet very recognizable smell and full-bodied flavor.
At ESP Tea Emporium, we select only premium black loose teas for their freshness and rich flavor characteristics. Our freshly cultivated leaves are left to oxidize, just the right amount of time, to reach a perfect black coloring and full-bodied flavor.
Our selection of premium black tea blends come from only the best tea growing regions to offer you a variety of black tea which will never let you down.
