Black

Black tea accounts for 85% of all tea consumed by the Western world. All true teas come from the same plant, Camellia Sinensis. The most oxidized of all the true teas, after harvesting, black tea is first withered, then undergoes one of two manufacturing processes - orthodox or CTC (Cut-Torn-Curled), is allowed to oxidize, and then is carefully dried and graded. Orange Pekoe (OP) or whole leaf teas are the finest grade and give the best tasting cup. As the leaf is broken down into smaller pieces, the grade declines down to fannings and dust, which are used in most commercial teabags. While giving a quick steep, the flavor is sub-standard. Whether you desire a wonderful Yunnan, a fine Darjeeling, a smooth Nilgiri, or a hearty Assam; you’ll find it here. Try one of our delicious loose leaf black teas today!

When you buy from Northwest Tea Company, you can be assured of only the best quality loose leaf teas and tisanes!
