What is Black Tea?

In fact, it is the most oxidised tea in the category of teas! Black tea is made from the Camellia Sinensis plant. Previously black tea was named ‘red tea’ because of its appearance.

Storing black tea is the easiest. Unlike other teas, this particular variety of tea can be stored for a long period. You can be sure of your black tea not losing its flavour, essence and taste up to one year!

The sun-drying process of the plucked tea leaves is the main reason of getting their black colour. It is the process of oxidisation and processing, which makes black tea distinct from the others, in respect of taste, flavour and aroma.
