We offer deliciously complex, high-quality loose-leaf black tea from India and Nepal. The name of each tea represents the region from which it hails—Assam, Darjeeling, and Kumaon, to name a few. All black teas go through the same four-step process: withering, rolling, oxidizing, and drying. The differences lie in the terroir in which tea bushes grow, and the expertise of the producer in coaxing the best out of each leaf. Black tea leaves’ dark color is a result of exposure to oxygen, each one meticulously oxidized until the moment of perfection, which is marked by a peak in the tea’s aroma known as “the second nose.” Characterized by its rich, bold taste and beautiful amber color, black tea is delicious on its own or pairs well with an array of foods.
