We take a look at Black Tea

Black Tea is the type of tea most of us in the UK will be most familiar with, and in particular, we may all have blends or brands that we love and feel loyal to.

 

Our traditional Black Tea brew is at the heart of our celebrated tea drinking culture.

 

The reality is that many of us have generations of knowledge passed down on how Tea should be made – and we would hate to interfere! However, if you were in the mood to explore, or fancied a shift to loose tea - perhaps there are a few hints here to help you make a brilliant cuppa!

 

Breakfast Tea, Darjeeling Tea and Scottish grown Garrocher Grey Tea are some of the varieties, types and flavours of Black tea available to us.

 

If you are unsure about using loose leaf tea:

  1. Use water at approximately 95C – just off the boil
  2. Brew for 2-3 mins – depending how strong you like your tea
  3. Use 1 teaspoon of tea per cup you are making (2 cup pot = 2 teaspoons of tea)
  4. If possible use equipment that allows leaves to be removed after desired steeping Try to avoid stewing Black Tea to enjoy the best flavours.

 

Some info on teas:

 

Breakfast Tea

Real Tea. Tea the way it used to be! You can take yourself back to days gone by, enjoying our blend of Assam and Ceylon Tea.

 

Darjeeling Tea

Beautiful fresh Darjeeling. The Champagne of Tea from the Himalayas. Earthy flavours with a hint of nuttiness. Classic afternoon tea!

 

Garrocher Grey Tea

Garrocher Grey Tea is a unique take on traditional Earl Grey by virtue of scented Monarda petals.  As Scotland's first Black Tea it is aromatic and complex. A real treat!
