Known as "red" tea in the Far East, the provincial Nilgiri, Qí'Mén and Ceylon Reds are the signature teas in high quality classic blends, such as English Breakfast, Earl Grey & Russian Caravan. These teas were originally blended with lower quality leaves because pure authentic Reds are expensive and rare to obtain. This varietal has long been the tea of choice for the English and is considered in South Asia to be the finest among robust and smooth "black" teas.
