Loose Leaf Black Tea



Did you know that loose leaf black tea is rich in antioxidants, phenols, and polyphenols? These natural compounds contribute to the flavor and texture of the tea and may offer potential health benefits. Scientific studies have shown that black tea can help prevent cancer, aid digestion, and promote healthy skin, hair, and teeth. Our collection of loose leaf black and organic black tea features a range of brisk, malty, smoky, fruity, and sweet flavors that are sure to delight your palate. Whether you're trying something new or revisiting an old favorite, you'll find comfort in every cup.

For those who prefer their tea strong, we suggest increasing the amount of leaf per cup until you find the desired strength, and following the steeping instructions on the package for best results. It's important to note that steeping the tea for longer than recommended won't increase the strength of the cup and may result in a bitter and astringent taste.

On average, an 8-ounce cup of black tea contains approximately 14-80 mg of caffeine. However, some types of black tea may have higher caffeine levels, up to 90 mg per 8-ounce cup.  When you steep tea for a longer period, more caffeine is typically extracted from the tea leaves, resulting in a higher caffeine content in the brewed tea. This is because caffeine is water-soluble and leaches out of the leaves over time. So, longer steeping times usually mean stronger and more caffeinated tea.


How many cups of tea can I steep from 1oz of loose leaf tea?

The number of 8oz cups you can steep from 1 oz of loose leaf tea varies depending on the type of tea and the strength of the brew desired, but a general guideline is that 1 oz of loose leaf tea can make approximately 10 to 15 cups of tea. Typically, 1 teaspoon of loose leaf tea (about 2-3 grams) is used per 8oz cup of water. Since 1 oz is approximately 28 grams, this means you can steep roughly 10 cups if you use 2.8 grams per cup, or closer to 14-15 cups if you use slightly less tea per cup. Multiple steepings of high-quality loose leaf teas can further increase the number of cups you can brew from the same leaves.
