Black Tea

 

Black tea

To produce black tea, leaves are harvested and withered and then crushed, torn, curled, or rolled and allowed to oxidize before being dried. As a result the leaves darken and develop a stronger flavor and aroma.

 
 

Brilliant Breakfast
A bright & bold morning tea.  Perfectly rounded, with body, strength, color and pungeny; the essence of a fine Ceylon tea.  The beautifully even Broken Orange Pekoe grade leaf yields a burgundy coloured liquor, which is robust & strong yet bright with an energetic personality.


Earl Grey
The legend of Earl Grey tea is one of politics and intrigue.  When a British diplomat saved the life of an official of the Imperial Chinese Court, a special gift of black tea enhanced with the peel of Bergamot, a pear-shaped citrus fruit, was given to Charles, 2nd Earl of Grey, then Prime Minister of England.  This original Earl Grey Tea offers a rich and strong Ceylon brew enhanced with the oil of Bergamot; a distinctive and unique flavour.
