Black Tea

As you can see above, we have some delicious premium Black tea for you to choose from.

If you want a tea with strong caffeine content, then black tea is the way to go. Black teas have a more tannic and developed flavour. It’s not uncommon to add milk or sugar to black teas — however, some Darjeelings and Chinese teas may have flavours that are too delicate for the addition of milk.

Black teas are fully fermented and vary in appearance, resulting in a golden-brown to dark colour and a variety of strengths and flavours. Black tea is sourced from every corner of the world, and the variation in strength and flavour can largely be attributed to the unique growing conditions in the country of origin.

Generally, the more cut, torn or crushed a tea leaf is the stronger the flavour of the black tea. Whereas the presence of tea buds or golden tips somewhat softens the liquor and produces a higher grade tea. However, a tea’s origin can also play a big part in the strength of a tea as this is determined by the soil, rain, temperatures and altitudes.

Assam traditionally produces strong teas, whereas Darjeelings produce fairly mild teas. Both tea growing regions are in India but it’s their temperatures, soil, altitude and rain conditions that produce different characteristics and totally set them apart from each other. This can also be said for other tea growing regions, giving them all a somewhat different strength or varying flavour characteristics.

Our extensive range of high-quality black teas includes strong, medium and light bodied blends, as well as a delicious, fruity range of fusion teas.

What are the health benefits of Black tea ?

There are a number of benefits to drinking Black tea. Black tea is great for boosting your alertness and energy. It is also good at helping with heart and gut health. So it is well worth while adding it into your tea selection at home.

Consider pouring a cup of Black tea the next time you want to relax and unwind during some well deserved “me” time. Enjoy the soothing aromas and elegant flavours of a freshly brewed Black tea. Even during summer, when you can whip up a batch of iced Black tea to cool down with style.

Making a cup of tea is also a great gesture of hospitality and a wonderful way to welcome someone into your home. Get together with those you love with a cup of Black tea in hand and make them feel right at home.

Making a pot or a cup of Black tea using loose leaves is not as hard as it sounds, with easy to use infusers and strainers available. However, if you are looking for a quicker alternative, we do also offer a range of teas in silk pyramid tea bags, including black tea bags, green tea bags and herbal tea bags.

How do you brew a cup of black tea?

To brew a perfect cup of black tea you need to do the following.

  • One teaspoon or 2g of black tea per 200ml.
  • Use water at 95°C, or just below the boil.
  • Steep broken leaves for 2-3 minutes, larger leaves and flavoured teas for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add a splash of milk, and sugar or honey if desired.
  • Buy Black tea online or in-store at The Tea Centre tea shops

    Here at The Tea Centre, we pride ourselves on the elite quality of our tea and work hard to make them luxurious and thoroughly enjoyable. You will notice how our Black teas are beautifully fragrant and enticing, with different sorts available like our Earl Greys, Chai Teas, Classic Breakfast Teas and our famous Stockholm Blend.
