For the people that want the true tea taste without additional ingredients; we have the flowery undertones of darjeelings; the malty assams; the rich buttery tanzanian; to the burgundy keemuns and more. 

Caffeine note: Black tea is noted for the highest level of caffeine in the tea categories. On average an 8 oz cup has about 45 mg of caffeine for tea vs. 142 mg for coffee.  The higher the additional ingredients the less caffeine factor.

All tea derives from the same plant camellia sinensis; the way the tea is dried and oxidized creates the five main categories of white, green, oolong, pu-erh and black tea . Each category of tea requires a slightly different brewing method for the optimum cup of tea.  Brewing instructions are included with every shipment.
