Black tea is the well known and highly appreciated form of tea from the camellia sinensis bush. Black tea leaves are fully oxidized and as a result produce a deep rich body, full flavor brew with a beautiful amber color. In contrast to green tea which does not go through the oxidation process. Consistently green tea has a much quieter flavor of tea.
During the oxidation process, oxygen comes in contact with the enzymes inside the tea leaf. This contact produces wonderful deep flavors. The flavor of each black tea varies depending upon the region in which the tea grows, weather conditions, and then finally the preparation of the tea.
