About Black Tea

Black and green teas actually made from the same plant: Camellia sinensis. Green and black teas are processed differently that results in distinct color and delivers them their special flavours aromas.

Compared to other types of tea, such as white tea, green tea and oolong tea; black tea is more oxidized.

Apart from that, it has a stronger flavor and contains more caffeine than other teas, but less caffeine than coffee.

Green and Oolong teas have been brewed in China for thousands of years, but there was no black tea until the 1730s. After the green tea factory production was held back, green tea leaves started to oxidize. The oxidation led to the distinct taste and color of black tea, and the accident became one of the most popular drinks in the world.


What is the difference between Black and Green Teas

As mentioned earlier, green tea is made from unoxidized tea leaves, and black tea is completely oxidized. The green tea leaves are dark green in color, and when are brewed, it comes out a light greenish or golden drink.

The oxidation process gives black tea leaves their dark color.  the colour of the brewed tea that has deep red hues. This is why black tea is often called "red tea" in China. Green tea has a light taste, while black tea has a stronger taste.

Unlike green tea leaves that may lose their flavour within a year, black tea leaves can easily keep their taste and aroma formuch longer time. That is one of the reasons for its popularity worldwide.

The tea taste may also vary depending on how the leaves are prepared. Some of the high-quality green and black teas are loose-leaf varieties, which produce a better taste than tea bags. Matcha, powdered leaf tea, is another great option. Most often, matcha is made from green tea leaves, but black matcha can also be obtained.

Iced tea, sun tea, Earl Grey tea, Ceylon tea and English breakfast tea - all these tea blends are different versions of black tea in the world.
