Ceylon Black Tea
Before we talk about Alltime Tea, let’s delve a little into the history of Ceylon black tea. Ceylon black tea is a variety of tea which is grown in Sri Lanka. Black, white, green, yellow, oolong and pu-erh tea all come from the same tea plant – camellia sinensis. It is only the process that differs. Alltime Tea is a premium Ceylon black tea that is lovingly hand-picked from the high-mountain region in Sri Lanka (Ceylon). The production of black tea uses oxidisation to dry out the tea leaves prior to packing – much the same as when cut apples turn brown. Black tea is the most oxidised of all the teas, resulting in the stronger flavour. As the colour of Ceylon black tea when combined with hot water is actually red, China refers to this black tea as “red tea”, however outside China, red tea is known as rooibos, a South African herbal tea. Alltime Tea is a traditional Ceylon black tea with a delicious taste that you will want to enjoy again and again. Alltime Tea is grown in the high region, which is famous for full-bodied, full-flavoured high-grown tea.
