Black Tea 黑茶

What many Westerners call “black tea” is, in Chinese, red tea (紅茶, hóngchá) – the classic “regular tea”, often enjoyed with milk and/or sugar, such as Assam, Ceylon, and English Breakfast. If this is what you’re looking for, you need to go to the Red Tea page.

Black tea (hēichá) refers to fermented tea, with its complex earthy, robust, musty, or smoky flavors – classically recommended for weight loss and flagging energy. Pu’erh is easily the most well-known black tea outside of China; often consumed for medicinal value, the taste is very complicated, but rewards the experienced tea drinker with a depth and finish that is utterly unique.

Each package of my tea contains enough to prepare ten 16-oz. (large) servings, or about thirteen 12-oz. (regular) servings. Precise steeping instructions are always on the label, as well as here on this website for your reference.
