What is black tea
Black tea comes just like green and white tea from the same tea plant Camellia Sinensis. Black tea is completely fermented, ie oxygenated, and is the type of tea that undergoes the longest processing process: picking, drying, rolling, fermenting and roasting. For the highest quality, only the top, thin and dark green top shoots are picked. Two leaves and a bud are picked, ie two leaves and the middle top shoot.
