Black Tea (Varietal/Non-Flavored)

Assam, Darjeeling, Ceylon, English Breakfast – all these are Black Teas, the most commonly known tea throughout the world.  But each is different!  Darjeeling, the “champagne of tea” is as different from Assam as Chardonnay is from Pinot Grigio.  Although they all begin as fresh green leaf, black teas get their dark color through a specific tea manufacturing process.  For more on this, read our section on Tea Basics.  You can browse by origin or name or type - just use the filters provided. For ease of navigation, we have arranged them alphabetically.  Additionally, well-known blends such as English Breakfast or Irish Breakfast are grouped under Popular Blends.
