Black Teas

Black Teas are produced by the oxidized of leaves from the tea plant, Camellla sinensis.
There are 4 steps in the process in producing black tea: withering, rolling, oxidation, and drying.
The differences in the black teas are due to additional processes such as place of origin, smoking, rolling the leaf, pan firing, blending teas from different origins, or as in the case of Earl Grey, adding a flavoring agent .
When brewed Black teas produce the typical dark liquid with bold taste that most people associate with tea.

How many cups of tea will this make?
Our teas are sold by weight.
Depending on the ingredients, some teas have more volume than others.
With that in mind, our bags of tea make anywhere from 15 to 30 cups of tea, using 1 teaspoon of tea per cup. For example : Licorice Spice Herbal Tea would be on the low end, while Earl Grey Lavender will be on the high end.
The size of the bags of tea in our pictures are 4 inches by 6 inches, before they are filled and sealed. This may help you in determining how much volume of tea is in each bag.
