Black Teas

Black Tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant. This is the exact same plant that gives us Green Tea, White Tea, and Oolong Tea. Black tea goes through a completely different process after it is picked. The leaves are torn, crushed and burnt or roasted to give it a unique flavour and biochemical composition. 

Each region processes tea slightly differently. Whether it's Chinese, Japanese or Kenyan. Black Tea can be the pure leaves in one style, but it is commonly a blend of types of black tea. For example, English Breakfast Tea is a blend of Assam, Ceylon and Kenyan tea.

Black tea is great tasting, and has a myriad of health benefits. It has the highest caffeine content of the pure teas, and is commonly flavoured with flowers or fruit to increase its effects on both the mood and the health.
