Black tea is a fully fermented tea which produces a dark brew with strong aroma and taste. It is the most widely consumed tea in the world, especially in the West.
For a good black tea, you’ve got to try tea from India and Sri Lanka. Here are some tasting tips:
Darjeeling: the “Champagne of Tea”, usually served as is or with a slice of lemon. Light to medium strength.
Assam: the strong coppery brew that goes well with milk and sugar. A good Assam should be malty and”rich”.
Ceylon: well balance amongst flavour, strength and aroma. Widely used in major tea brands found in supermarkets.
We have always been lovers of Assam tea. The delicious malty brew is super rich with flavour and its robust strength propped us up in those early mornings as parents when the kids were babies.
But what we have found is these recent years Assam quality is dropping (wish I can say the same for the price).
With much regret, we are removing our 2 Organic Assam black tea as they are no longer providing a good value for your and our investment.
So after much searching, we are happy to offer you these two teas to replace our Assam.
