Exploring the World of Black Tea with La Maison Bleue: Types, Origins, and More

The Rising Popularity of Tea

Tea's popularity has been on the rise lately, possibly owing to its reputation as a calming, centering, and relaxing beverage. Nearly 80% of US households reportedly have tea in their kitchen, with almost half the nation enjoying tea daily.

The Allure of Black Tea

Black tea is an essential addition to any tea collection. Often referred to as "regular" tea, it holds the title of the most widespread and popular tea globally. Despite its common name, black tea is far from ordinary.

Black tea leaves boast the most concentrated flavor among all teas derived from the Camellia sinensis plant. While white, green, and black teas all come from the same plant, the withering and oxidation processes unique to black tea result in a sweet and rich concentrated flavor. Described as malty, earthy, and smoky, black tea infuses a deep amber or copper hue when steeped.

Exploring Black Tea Varieties

The flavor, aroma, and color of black tea varieties can vary depending on factors such as region, climate, processing methods, and added ingredients. Below, we'll delve into some common types of black teas:

Classic Black Teas

Classic black teas highlight the pure flavor of the tea plant without additional ingredients. Named after their growing regions, these teas offer unique tasting notes influenced by their origins.

Darjeeling Black Tea

Darjeeling tea, also known as the champagne of teas, originates from the Darjeeling district of West Bengal, India. La Maison Bleue offers a delightful Darjeeling Black Full Leaf Tea, prized for its lighter, fruity, and floral taste.

Assam black tea, bold and malty, hails from the Assam region in Northeastern India. La Maison Bleue's Organic Assam Breakfast Black Tea Bags provide a full-bodied experience, perfect with or without milk or sugar. We have one of the best Okinawa Milk Teas we make in DFW!
