Origin of the tea plant

Black teas are completely fermented teas. All teas, whether black, white, yellow or green, come from the same tea plant. With the tea plant, there are different species, the two “origin plants” are the Thea Sinensis and the Thea Assamica. Both species were and are crossed with each other. Thus, you get tea plant hybrids with special requirements, strengths and flavor characteristics. However, the taste of a tea also depends greatly on the method of cultivation, the place of cultivation and how the tea is processed. You can find more details about the origin of our black teas on the respective product page.

Prepare black teas correctly

By the way, the prejudice that black teas are only bitter is not true. The bitter taste is usually the result of incorrect preparation. Do not let black teas steep too long. You don’t like that at all! Black teas are best brewed with 100° hot and fresh water. Optimally, you use soft water for the preparation of your black tea. You can find more information about the correct preparation here.
