  • What Is Black Tea?

    When people think of tea, it is probably black tea that springs to mind first. Black tea is known for its full flavour. It is stronger than other teas like oolong, white, and green tea. Black tea is aged for a long time, and this gives it its robust taste.

    How To Store Black Tea

    It doesn’t matter whether you use tea bags or loose leaf tea; the Ringtons team always recommends storing black tea in a tin or other airtight container to enjoy maximum freshness. We also advise that you keep your tea away from direct light or heat to preserve the quality.  

    How To Drink Black Tea

    To prepare black tea, steep your tea leaves or tea bag in hot water for three to five minutes, depending on your desired strength. You can drink it as it is without milk, or you can add milk if you prefer. Black tea is probably one of the most popular teas to add milk to, making it a satisfying drink. Some people choose to add a twist of fresh lemon to this versatile hot drink to shake it up from time to time.
