Loose Leaf Black Teas

Bold Flavors & Bracing Aroma

All teas, including Loose Leaf Black Teas, come from the same plant, and the differences in color and flavor arise from how tea is processed.

During the process, some black tea leaves are left as is, while others might be rolled with oils or mixed with other ingredients like flower petals, fruit, or flavorings. This results in the differences between a breakfast loose leaf black tea like “China Keemun” and a scented fruit black tea like “Sunrise.”

Loose Leaf Black Teas are high in tannins and have more caffeine than other types of tea, making them great “starter” teas for those who want to make the switch from coffee to tea. Plus, they provide great body and flavor to make refreshing iced tea in the summer!
