Black Tea

Those new to tea are the most familiar with black tea. It is also known as red tea, due to its rich, reddish infusion. Black teas are relatively high in caffeine, with about half as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. While black teas are made from the Camellia Sinensis plant, the oxidation and processing are what distinguishes them from other teas. The lengthier oxidation process causes the tea leaves to develop into dark brown and black colors. From the mellow teas of China to the more full-bodied teas from Assam, India, the flavors can range from malty or smoky to fruity and sweet. Black tea is the most popular type of tea in the West and enjoyed both hot and cold.
