About our Black Teas

– Type of Tea made from the shrub Camellia sinensis and undergoes complete oxidation. Two varieties of the shrub exist, the small-leaved Chinese and the large-leaved Assamese
– While green tea usually loses its flavor within a year, black tea retains its flavor for several years. For this reason, it has long been an article of trade, and compressed bricks of black tea even served as a form of de facto currency in Mongolia, Tibet and Siberia into the 19th century.
