Tea, Black (Whole-Leaf)
14g | Hilo, HI | Single-estate
Whole leaf, black tea grown above Onomea Bay on the Big Island of Hawai'i, by Mike and Rob of Onomea Tea Co. Wonderfully aromatic and full-flavored with notes of honey, butterscotch, and tropical fruit.
Artisanly crafted by harvesting only the bud and first leaf of the Camillia sinensis plant before being dried and oxidized. It is the oxidation process where each unique tea is created, wether black, oolong, green or white. Black tea is more highly oxidized, using a controlled method, and contains less caffeine because of this process. The oxidation process releases new compounds which in turn create the complex flavor profiles each tea is known for.
