Black tea is a fully fermented variety of tea that comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant. Black tea is known for its complex yet recognisable smell and strong flavour.

The process of making loose black tea involves:

  • withering then rolling of the tea leaves
  • a long period of fermentation
  • leaves are fired resulting in a loose leaf tea

Pollards stock a variety of loose leaf black teas from:

  • China
  • India (Assam, Darjeeling)

  • and many more…
