What Is Black Tea?
This Black tea is a true tea that comes from small Camellia sinensis leaves, unlike most other black teas. Black tea leaves are allowed to fully oxidize before being processed and dried, which makes the leaves dark brown and gives the tea its signature flavor profile. Black teas tend to be bold and brisk, and they are often described as astringent.
