The Tea Centre’s traditional black tea range
Here at The Tea Centre, our traditional black teas are made in the way they were conventionally intended, using the finest quality ingredients sourced from the best sustainable tea gardens in the world. Traditional black tea comes from the tea bush (camellia sinensis) and its dark red appearance is due to the tea’s extended oxidation process. Traditional black teas are particularly unique due to their history, ritualised consumption, or regional variations.
You can see this in our traditional breakfast tea, lapsang souchong (the first black tea ever invented), Russian Caravan (a unique smoky black tea blend), and East Frisian tea (inspired by the West Germanic group’s unique tea traditions).
What are the health benefits of traditional black tea?
Each traditional black tea comes with its own unique health benefits. However, all black tea share common medicinal properties. For example, all of our traditional black teas help with concentration levels and are filled with antioxidants. This makes black tea a great energising alternative to coffee in the morning. So it is well worth adding traditional green tea into your home collection.
Consider pouring a cup of traditional black tea the next time you want to relax and unwind during some well deserved “me” time. Making a mug of tea is also a great gesture of hospitality and a wonderful way to welcome someone into your home. Spend time together with those you love with a mug of traditional black tea in hand.
