Black Teas

Black loose leaf tea is allowed to oxidize more completely than all other types of loose leaf tea. Black loose leaf tea usually offers the strongest flavors and, in some cases, the greatest astringency. Black teas are the only style of tea regularly consumed with milk and sugar (though some dark Oolong drinkers may disagree) and are the most popular bases for iced tea.

Famous black loose leaf teas include, Sri Lanka, or Ceylon, Tea, Keemun, Assam, Yunnan and Darjeeling.

Our black loose leaf teas are carefully selected and hand-crafted by tea masters. We micro-blend and package small batches assuring you get the best loose leaf tea from each harvest.

At The Spice & Tea Shoppe we never compromise on quality and strive to offer you only the best loose leaf tea because we feel you deserve it.

  • Because this tea is grown at such high altitudes and in relatively cool weather the bushes grow slowly, hence the production is limited. The best time of the year for quality is the second flush (late May - June). During this time Darjeelings are incomparable to any other tea in the world. The fragrance and taste are a complex bouquet that reaches right out of the cup. Some describe as nutty; others detect black currants, but most often it is described as the taste and fragrance of Muscat grapes.
