Collection: Black Tea

Black tea (Camellia sinensis) is a type of tea that undergoes full oxidation, resulting in its characteristic dark colour and robust flavour. The journey begins in lush tea gardens, where skilled pluckers carefully select young tea leaves. These leaves are then meticulously processed to create loose leaf tea. This kind of tea releases the most amount of tannin and can be drunk with or without milk. It is also the tea that deteriorates the slowest and therefore can stay fresh for up to two years if kept in an airtight container. It is the most consumed tea variety in the west especially by the Irish who at the moment consume the most tea per person in the world.

    If you’re a tea totaller or a total tea nut you have to try Golden Monkey Tea Company.

    Their Maple Toffee tea will always be a permanent favourite and to prove it we've even named our dog after it.

    Having visited the store in the week I can not recommend the experience enough. The knowledge of tea and the atmosphere in the store was fantastic.
