Premium Black Tea

80e085529e152ccc13ab435b6648f53b-727
Black Tea is the most popular style of tea consumed in New Zealand.
It is the most robust in flavour of all the teas and is often consumed with milk and/or sugar.

Tisane Studio has chosen a selection of premium black teas with a variety of flavours
tailored especially for the New Zealand palates.

Black teas contain tannins, which when steeped longer than 5 minutes turn bitter.
If you require a stronger brew then add more tea to increase the strength rather than brewing longer.
As a general rule black tea should be steeped at a water temperature of 90c, hotter water can burn tea.
If you do not have a thermometer then boil the water then let it cool for 5 minutes before steeping your tea.
It's best to use fresh tap water (spring or filtered water is better) as re-boiled water makes a 'flat' brew.
Warming your teapot and teacup (with hot water) also makes a difference to the black tea.
With most black teas it is recommended to steep for 3 minutes.
However tea is subjective, you can do what you like.
