Black Tea

Any variety of Camellia sinensis that undergoes a multi-step process of withering, rolling, oxidation and firing. Black tea requires full oxidation of the leaves to develop the specific character, color, flavor and aromas that define some of the world’s most beloved teas. The G.S. Haly Company’s extensive selection of black tea spans many estates and small gardens across China, India and Sri Lanka.
