The Carrington Tea Company proudly boasts these rich, enticing flavored black teas which are sure to please the most particular tea connoisseurs.
Black tea, which has a stouter taste and deeper coloring than green tea is gaining the interest of health researchers. It makes sense that black tea and green tea show similar promise; they are made with leaves from the same evergreen, Camellia Sinensis.
Leaves destined to become black tea are fermented. This fermentation is achieved by rolling the leaves vigorously to make them release a certain enzyme, then allowing them to sit for a few hours. During this time the enzyme interacts with oxygen and the leaves develop a heartier flavoring and their darker coloring.
The Carrington Tea Company has scoured the world’s top flavor houses to find the exotic and invigorating flavors used in our Gourmet Flavors tea line. One or more of these richly flavored teas is sure to become the favorite in your household.
