Part one of our blog on black tea told the history of the famous tea type and how it is made. This week, we’ll start from where we left off by delving into some examples of black teas. So, welcome back tea-friends. Buckle up, and let’s continue!
As mentioned in part one, this blog's purpose is to focus on and discuss exclusively Chinese-grown black teas. Generally speaking, the main types of Chinese black teas are: gongfu cha, xiaozhong cha, and hong sui cha. As most high quality black teas are considered to be gongfu cha, we shall talk about those teas first.
