Black Tea

Fermented tea leaves.

Black tea gets its color and character from the processing of the leaves. Once picked, the leaves are oxidized, resulting in higher levels of soluble caffeine and tannins.

Although green and white teas are touted for their health-giving properties due to their high antioxidant content, black tea is still a healthy beverage as it contains antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and essential oils which aid in digestion.
