How do we create our distinct bold and flavorful black tea blends?

We use a particularly high percentage of premium Ceylon tea in our black tea blends.  Most companies use the cheaper China black teas.  Here at Retro Leaf, quality is of the utmost importance.

The type of Ceylon tea we use has been carefully selected for its unique flavor and distinct brownish-red color.  Because of this, the output of loose-leaf tea per pound is also very high.  Meaning, you basically need only 2-3 teaspoons of our blended black teas to make a 20 oz pot of tea.

In addition, these teas are best when made on the lighter side.  Try a bag or two, or three, and experience tea with a byte!
