Tea time is a chance to slow down, pull back and appreciate our surroundings...

— Letitia Baldrige"

There are many different types of tea, from equally as many countries. They have one thing in common, whether it is black, green or white tea, they all come from the tea plant Camellia Sinensis.

The difference is caused by the method of processing the tea leaf after picking, the type of leaf that is used, the season in which the leaf is picked, the place where the tea plant grows (height, exposure to sunlight etc.) and the type of soil on which the plant grows.

In the western world, black tea is still the most popular tea, although green tea has started to catch up.

Black tea is obtained by allowing the tea leaves to oxidize completely before processing and drying. This turns the leaf dark brown to almost black and gives it its distinctive flavor profile.

Black tea originated in China, but the production has now spread to India, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Indonesia, Rwanda and Brazil, among others.

Tea shop The Smallest House has a very extensive collection of black loose tea, from unique Single Origins to special tea blends. Go explore and let yourself be surprised!
