We love black tea — the most common form of the beverage that comes from the oxidized leaves of the Camellia sinensis shrub. Of the many varieties, we appreciate the perfume-y profile of Earl Grey just as much as the (acquired) smoky taste of Lapsang Souchong. Given the vast multitude of excellent black teas from all over the world, from Kenya to Nepal to China, it would seem too bold to say these 10 teas are the very best. Instead, we offer 10 personal favorites, many of them organic and sustainable, and all crafted with utmost care. Happy sipping!
