Black Tea

Black tea (or “red tea” as it is known in China) is a style of oxidized tea that was developed in China’s Fujian province about 450 years ago. Fruity, rich, and complex, black tea is the style of tea that most people in the west think of when they picture “tea.”

Chinese black teas are made with a variety of tea bushes and processing techniques. From the well-known smoky Lapsang Souchong to the delicate, new-style Anji Hong, we offer a range of regions and flavors.

The first cup kisses away my thirst,
and my loneliness is quelled by the second.
The third gives insight worthy of ancient scrolls,
and the fourth exiles my troubles.
My body becomes lighter with the fifth,
and the sixth sends word from immortals.
But the seventh —oh the seventh cup— if I drink you,
a wind will hurry my wings toward the sacred island.
