Black Tea

Black tea is one of those tea types that tends to be left on the side of the road as people embark on their true tea journey. I think that this is because there is so much poor quality black tea made to satisfy the commodity market that it becomes associated for many people with low quality tea. This could not be further from the truth! Sure there are boat loads of basic black tea out there but the really high quality stuff occupies a rarefied atmosphere of some of the finest teas on Earth.
