About Flavoured China Black Tea
The history of Tea began in China many thousands of years ago. This was Green Loose Tea, however, with Black Tea not arriving on the scene for some time after.
Historians suggest that the first Black Tea was, in fact, Lapsang Souchong - which, in turn, was the product of pure accident. The story goes that a group of farmers, keen to get their crop to the market before bandits took it from them, dried the leaves over fires.
This process indeed worked in speeding up the process. Yet it also produced a distinctly smoky flavour and dark character in the Tea. The farmers, at first, believed that they’d ruined their crop. It couldn’t have been further from the truth.
What they had done was to create a beverage that would eventually go on to enthral the world. And other Black Tea types would follow, including this one.
The concept of a Flavoured Black Tea, meanwhile, is a relatively new one. The last few years, in particular, have seen increased demand for scented infusions.
Our Cinnamon and Plum Black Tea is one of the finer examples, going above and beyond to impress casual drinkers and connoisseurs alike. It is a true delight to the senses - as, hopefully, you’re about to find out!
