Two Leaves and a Bud is notoriously picky about sourcing only organic, whole leaf black tea that provides delicious, yummy flavor! Our black teas are sourced in India where the varied terrain produces a variety of black tea flavors. From intense heat and humidity that gives a bold, rich flavor, to hilly terrain with cool mountain temperatures that generates a subtle astringency, the differences in sunlight, wind and soil quality has an instant impact on the flavor of the tea itself.
We demand a lot from a cup of tea – and now you can too.
Two Leaves and a Bud's Black Teas are:
Black tea is made from leaves that have been oxidized. After being hand plucked, withered, and laid out to wilt for several hours, the leaves are then rolled. This is critical to prepare the leaves for oxidation (fermentation) where the leaves are ruptured, and the enzymes are exposed to oxygen. Black tea gets its color and character as a result of the fermentation process.

Black Tea Health Benefits
While not normally recognized for their healthful properties, black teas like our Organic Assam and our Organic Darjeeling feature a number of benefits. Those include high flavonoids for heart health, polyphenols, which are a source of antioxidants, and catechins and tannins, which can improve oral health.

We like malty tea from Assam, moderately astringent Darjeeling, and matcha lattes that aren’t too sweet. We like it when the tea, herbs and spices in our tea sachets and latte mixes stand out and become the reason we look forward to the next sip. We’re particular about tea that comes from sustainable, organic gardens where the pluckers are paid fairly. We’re also particular about sourcing packaging that keeps our tea fresh but doesn’t have to end up in a landfill.
