GENERIC BLACK TEA
Good morning, good looking! Our delightfully rich and robust black tea blend is the perfect way to shake off the cobwebs, throw back the curtains and bring a ray of sunshine into your day. Its bold and enlivening flavour comes from our dedication to only using carefully selected leaves picked at the peak of their freshness. It’s the quintessential cup of tea—a bright, sunny flavour. Lovely stuff!
black tea benefits
- A tasty way to help you achieve the recommended daily fluid intake1
- Straight to the point and strong. And a zero-calorie beverage when consumed without the addition of milk or sugars!
- With over 4000 hours of pure sunshine soaked into every teabag, we think our black tea really is a cupful of sunny, feel-good vibes.
Tea time ideas
There’s a good reason black tea has long been used as a classic breakfast drink—this much loved blend works brilliantly to awaken your senses and get you feeling lively and in the zone after rolling out of bed. We love serving it with a splash of milk to properly ignite its robust flavours. And with 4000 hours of Kenyan sunshine soaked into every single teabag, we think it’s the perfect way to get the sunshine vibes flowing for the day ahead, whatever other plans the weather has.
For a perfect food pairing, a breakfast tea needs breakfast foods. Whether you’re partial to a bacon and egg bagel or super-greens-smashed-avocado-and-activated-cashew-smoothie-bowl as the first meal of the day, our black tea pairs particularly well with just about anything as the ultimate breakfast beverage. So pop the kettle on and get the day off to a tea-rrific start!
Getting the best from your brew
To get all the benefits of black tea, we recommend letting your teabag steep for a solid 2-3 minutes in freshly boiled water until it turns a rich amber colour. Of course, feel free to adjust according to your strength preference—longer steep time results in a richer flavour. Got milk (tea)? If you’ve only ever drunk our tea in its robustly flavoured plain variety, we suggest you give black tea with milk a try. Benefits of black tea with milk include the tea’s more powerful flavours being somewhat tempered, softening their edges into a smoother taste and texture.
