Black tea is the most popular type of tea in the United Kingdom, and around the world. We are a nation obsessed with a strong cup of black tea, and while we all differ on how we like it (with or without sugar/milk, strong or weak) we all agree that it is top dog when it comes to tea.

At Shelgo Tea we focus on organic, healthy herbal teas, but we’re no strangers to black tea and have consumed vast quantities of this beverage ourselves. We have also written about it extensively and believe it to be as beneficial as many other types of tea. In this section of the Shelgo Tea blog it’s those guides that we will showcase, covering everything there is to know about this popular drink.

If you love it as much as we do, then this is a great place to start. We’ll look at the health benefits, the growing regions, the varieties, and much more.
