Benefits of Black Tea

Black tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant and can be enjoyed hot or iced — often with cream, sugar or lemon. Considered by some drinkers as a great alternative to coffee, black tea traditionally contains caffeine, although there are also decaf options available today. When brewed, it can range from red to dark brown. In addition to its many varieties and wonderful flavors, black tea has been associated with possible health benefits — from lower cholesterol to decreased risks for hypertension and heart disease.

What Makes Black Tea Unique?

Black tea is distinct by how it’s created — oxidized longer than other varieties. This oxidation is what makes its leaves darker and where it got its name. Black teas tend to offer stronger, bolder flavors than other types of tea, and they can contain the most caffeine of tea varieties. There are hundreds of black tea varieties, and each one offers distinct flavor and enjoyment.
