Black Tea by Sunny Island Tea Co. Brown Bag Package

Black tea is your perfect breakfast tea.
It is the most oxidized tea, which gives black tea its signature strong flavor. Black tea gives you that proper caffeine kick to keep energized throughout the day.
Its bold flavor calls for a natural pairing with sugar, jam, or cookies – as codified in the British Tea Time tradition. Black tea has a number of health benefits, too:

  • Black tea is ultra low in sodium, fat and calories.
  • Black tea helps reduce cardiovascular problems.
  • Black tea is rich in antioxidants.

Ingredients: Hand-plucked natural black tea leaves.
