About Classic Tea

 

Classic blend teas are carefully selected to bring you the best classic teas at the best price.

The production of orthadox black tea comprises of five processes which overlap each other. Immediately after plucking, the fresh leaves are spread out on long grates in the halls and made to wither using hot air. On rolling, the cell walls are broken and the cell juice is released combining with oxygen in the air. The process of fermentation and oxidation is set off and the leaves turn a copper red colour. When later drying, the leaves become darker and darker. The next step is to grade the leaves so the different grades are separated. The leaf teas (FTGFOP1) broken tea (BOP) and fannings dust (Fngs) where the smallest fragments and dust are put into cheap supermarket teabags.
