The Tea Centre’s collection of mild medium-grade black teas

While Darjeeling (a light black tea) is often considered the finest black tea of them all, The Tea Centre thinks that the best tea for you is one you can sip everyday. That is why we absolutely adore our medium black tea range that caters to all our sippers that are after a good ol’ regular tea.

Still strong enough to lend itself to milk, but just as tasty on its own, our medium black tea is the perfect sip for the indecisive tea drinker. This collection does boast some of our finest black teas like Keemun Finest and Hajua Assam, which are some of the best medium black teas to drink without milk. To add in extra sweetness would mar the subtle complex flavours in these premium teas!

Our fully oxidised medium black teas boast a mild caffeine content and comforting flavour profiles. These unique tasting notes change depending on the medium black brew’s tea-growing region and production methods.

 

What are the health benefits of black tea?

<

Being one of the most consumed beverages in the world, it should come as no surprise that a number of clinical reviews have been conducted on the health benefits of drinking black tea. For example, one 2017 Sri Lankan study on black tea broke down the composition of the leaves and how these components have positive bioactive impacts on the body. Just some of the good things that black tea contains are: catechins, theaflavins, simple polyphenols/other polyphenols, theanine, amino acids, peptides/proteins, potassium, and caffeine.

Containing less caffeine than your average coffee, this component works well with theanine to bring the sipper some focus and mental stimulation (Kahathuduwa et al., 2016). Catechins boast the double impact of not only blessing tea with a tannic taste (bold biting flavour) but also thought to encourage antioxidant activity. Lastly, "tea polyphenols are also known for their antibacterial activity." (Kodagoda & Wickramasinghe, 2017). However, it should be note that antibacterial activity decreases when the extent of tea fermentation is increased, implying stronger activity in green tea than black tea.

Consider pouring a cup of medium 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 Kenyan Marinyn or breakfast tea. Be sure to spend time together with those you love, a mug of medium black tea in hand.

 

How do you brew a cup of medium black tea?

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

  • Measure out one teaspoon or two grams of black tea per 200ml using an infuser or filter bag.
  • Pour in water at 95°C or just below the boil.
  • Steep broken leaves for 2-3 minutes. Steep larger leaves and flavoured teas for 3-4 minutes.
  • Ideal on its own or with a dash of milk. Enjoy!
