Ah, Black Tea—we just can’t get enough of it. But we aren’t alone in our appreciation. Black Tea is the most commonly consumed tea variety in the world. Known as Red Tea in China, Black Tea comes from Camellia Sinensis tea leaves, the same leaves used for Green Tea. The difference? To make Black Tea, these green leaves are crushed and then exposed to air. This process is known as oxidization and it’s what changes the color from green to a deep coppery red.
Consumed hot, or made into a refreshing iced tea, Black teas offer a world of flavor just waiting to be explored.
