Premium Loose Leaf Tangerine Black Tea

Tangerine Black Tea offers refreshing citrus with a light touch of sweetness. Orange pieces are mixed with high grown Ceylon tea from Sri Lanka. The nuances of fresh tangerines are recreated perfectly. Very fruity and excellent iced.

Tea plants were introduced to Sri Lanka in 1824 and it is now one of the largest tea producers. The cool temperatures and perfect humidity and rainfall in the country's central highlands provides an excellent environment to growing high quality tea. Two leaves and a bud are picked by hand and quickly taken to a nearby tea factory. There, the tea leaves are spread out and withered, removing moisture. Leaves are then rolled, twisted, parted and left for oxygen to begin the oxidation process. Regulating the temperature, humidity and time of oxidation requires a lot of skill and any failure will destroy the flavor of the tea. During this process, the color changes from green to black and the leaves become hard. The leaves are finally heated to stop the oxidation process.

The tea is sorted by size and shape and then packaged for selling. Before exporting, the Sri Lanka Tea Board checks and samples each shipment to ensure only the finest quality teas are being shipped.

Ceylon black tea has a crisp aroma similar to citrus. Excellent as an iced tea.

Our premium loose leaf Tangerine Black Tea can be steeped several times.
