black Tea

This tea is fully fermented. During fermentation the leaves are rolled to break up the leaf cells and a natural oxidation process begins turning the leaves black. This type of tea accounts for 90% of the worlds tea production.

The quality and taste of tea is dependent on a number of factors: the variety of tea plant, where it is grown, weather during the growing season, the time of the year it is harvested, how it is processed, and the care taken in processing.

Health Benefits: Black tea is a powerful source of anti-oxidants that can slow down the aging process and help prevent a wide variety of diseases. Medical research suggests that black tea can assist in lowering cholesterol and regulating blood sugar. Much lower in caffeine than coffee, black tea gently stimulates the heart and circulatory system. By keeping blood vessels soft and lowering blood pressure, black tea can help prevent heart disease and strokes.
