Black tea production

Black tea

The production of black tea involves several distinct phases, each critical to developing the tea's unique flavour, color, and aroma:

  • Withering: Freshly picked tea leaves are spread out to wilt and lose moisture, making them pliable.
  • Rolling: Withered leaves are rolled mechanically or by hand to break down their cell walls, releasing essential oils and enzymes.
  • Oxidation: The rolled leaves are exposed to air, allowing enzymatic oxidation (often referred to as fermentation) to occur. This process develops the tea's color and flavour.
  • Drying: To stop oxidation, the leaves are heated through baking or firing, reducing moisture content and fixing the flavour.
  • Sorting and Grading: The dried leaves are sorted into grades based on size and quality through sieving, ensuring uniformity in the final product.

Each step is meticulously controlled to achieve the desired quality and characteristics of the finished black tea.

Organic certification

Organic certification and testing

All our teas are organic certified and tested for pesticides, ensuring they meet stringent quality standards. We steadfastly reject the use of artificial flavors and concentrated aromas. Our approach to creating flavored and blended teas is deeply intentional, involving the in-house selection and combination of each ingredient. Our commitment extends to using only organically certified, whole spices, deliberately avoiding grinding them into fine powders. This choice ensures our teas remain pure and clear, as finely ground spices can release excessive power into the brew, compromising its clarity. The essence of our fruit flavors comes from organic essential oils, obtained through cold press technology to preserve the natural qualities without the degradation that can occur with heat. Proudly, every ingredient in Nannuo Pop is organically certified, embodying our unwavering commitment to purity and quality, without exceptions. This commitment to quality and safety reflects our dedication to providing the best possible product to our customers, with a focus on health and environmental sustainability.
