Black Teas

Best known in the Western world, black teas are completely oxidized. Their flavours and aromas are woodier and fruitier, sometimes malty and grainy with delicious, musky notes or even herbal and floral notes, depending of their quality and origin. Comprised of buds and young leaves, their grades vary greatly: from fine and subtle artisan teas with whole leaves to manufactured teas with broken and chopped leaves used for bagged tea. Black tea contains more caffeine and tannin, which stimulates the body and boosts vitality.
