Black Tea

Do you know the difference between black tea vs green tea, oolong, and white tea? All of these tea varieties come from the Camellia sinensis plant. 100% oxidized, black tea caffeine levels are higher than the others. Many types of black tea (also called Hong Cha "red tea") are grown in China and India.

How do you enjoy the flavor and benefits of black tea? Traditional English Breakfast tea with milk and southern sweet tea are two examples. Spicy chai masala is a popular blend from India. Savor bold flavor and black tea benefits with varieties from Darjeeling to Assam to floral Earl Grey and smoky Lapsang Souchong.
