Top 5 Most-Viewed Pages for Styles of Pure Black Tea on RateTea

This post highlights the top 5 most-viewed pages on RateTea for styles of pure black tea. These styles include both blends defined by their character, like English and Irish breakfast, as well as those defined by their region of origin, like Darjeeling, as well as more specific varieties, like Lapsang Souchong or Golden Monkey. I did not include flavored teas on this list.

The category I'm selecting from is a bit of a hodge-podge, but the results are not at all surprising:

  • English Breakfast - The classic style of tea consumed with breakfast in England; strong, but not too strong.

  • Darjeeling Black Tea - One of the most well-known of the single origin black teas, widely known for artisan teas.

  • Assam - Known as a strong black tea, and also among the best-known of the single-origin teas.

  • Lapsang Souchong - The smoky black tea, one of the best-known Chinese varieties of tea.

  • Irish Breakfast - The stronger breakfast tea.

The runner-up is Ceylon. Yes, this list is boring. Hey, I can't make every post interesting, right?
