What is Indian Black Tea?
The Indian Tea industry was established by the British to supply the high demand in the British and European markets. The British developed a new style of processing CTC during the 1930’s but spread during the 1950’s. This stands for Cut, Tear and Curl or Crush depending on the tea to be processed. This new process increased the production of Black Tea and increased the volume in packing the tea. Find out more here. Introduction to Black Tea
How to enjoy your tea
It is better to drink Chinese Black Tea without milk. However, milk can be added to a large number of Indian black teas. Hot black tea is delicious with breakfast foods or sweet pastries.
