BLACK TEA

Our premium black teas are medium- to full-bodied with flavors from savory to sweet. The best loose leaf black tea leaves have a good shelf life, retaining their distinct flavor for several years. The flavor can be stronger and more astringent than other teas, but when brewed correctly black tea should be smooth and flavorful. 

Does black tea have caffeine?

On average, black tea has more caffeine than other tea types. The typical 8oz cup of black tea contains between 14-70mg of caffeine, compared to 95mg of caffeine in an average cup of coffee. The variance of caffeine in black tea is due to water temperature, brewing time or leaves to water ratio.

The hotter the water, the longer the brewing time, and the higher the ratio of tea leaves to water will increase the caffeine level. As an oxidized tea, caffeine is more easily extracted from black tea than other types of tea.

If you are looking for a low-calorie, no sugar beverage with less caffeine than you get with coffee or energy drinks, black tea is the perfect option for you.

Benefits of black tea

With all the antioxidants in black tea, it may provide several health benefits. 

Many people consume black tea to help lower "bad" LDL cholesterol, improve gut health and decrease high blood pressure. When consumed regularly, black tea may also provide other health benefits such as:

  • Boosting heart health

  • Reducing the risk of stroke

  • Lowering blood sugar

  • Reducing the risk of cancer

  • Helping improve focus

Unlike some tea which can turn bitter if brewed at higher temperatures, black tea is best when steeped at 195-200F.

Enjoy the benefits of drinking black tea.
