Darjeeling and Assam are two of the most renowned Tea-producing regions in India, their teas revered for the delicate and bold flavor profiles, invigorating aromas, and strength. Black Teas are incredibly healthy and have abundant beneficial antioxidants that boost overall health.

    What is the best way to make Black Teas?

    The best way to make a perfect cup of signature black tea is to get 200ml of freshly-filtered water to a boil (90-100 degrees celsius) and add 2 grams (0.07 oz) of your favorite black tea to it. Switch off the heat, cover it, and let the tea steep for 3-5 minutes depending on how strong you like your cup to be. Strain into a cup and sip while hot! The best time to have a cup of black tea is the morning or early evening. Since black tea has considerable caffeine (lesser than coffee) and hence should be avoided before bedtime. You can add a splash of milk to your black teas or have it plain as well. If you are wondering whether to add milk first or tea first to your cup, then you can read all about it here.

    Good-tasting tea...and fresh!

    Order arrived promptly. The tea was vacuum packed so that was a plus. Another nice thing was that the date of harvest was on package and unlike other teas, it was easy to see how fresh this was. Although I do not make my tea like anyone else, I still know what tastes good and what doesn't and both my hubby and I liked this one. Will probably buy again when this one is used up.
