Cupper’s has a variety of loose and bagged black teas for you. Black tea is more oxidized than oolong, white and green teas. It’s also usually stronger, bolder and richer in flavor than other teas. These teas can usually be steeped at a higher temperature than other teas or herbal tisanes for approximately 3-5 minutes. Longer steeping increases the tannins and astringency of the tea.
Choose your tea from several excellent tea producers, including Rishi, Numi and Metz Specialty. We love the teas we have in-store and online and use several of them on our drinks menu. Ask any of our staff if you need assistance finding the right tea for you!
