What is black tea?

Black tea is a popular type of tea made from the fermented leaves of the Camellia sinensis tea plant. Unlike green or white tea, black tea undergoes a complete fermentation process, giving it its characteristic dark color and robust flavor.

After harvesting, the leaves are rolled and then oxidized, which develops the aromatic compounds and creates the full aroma.

Taste and varieties of black tea

Black tea offers a wide range of flavors, from mild and floral to bold and malty. Popular varieties such as Assam, Darjeeling, Ceylon and Earl Grey are known for their unique flavors and distinctive characteristics.

Assam tea, for example, is known for its strong and malty taste, while Darjeeling tea has a delicate and floral character. Each variety offers an individual sensory experience and can be selected according to preferences and occasions.

Health benefits of black tea

Black tea contains several compounds that may provide health benefits. It is rich in antioxidants, particularly flavonoids, which may protect the body from free radical damage.

Regular consumption of black tea can strengthen the immune system, promote heart health, and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition, black tea also contains caffeine, which can increase alertness and concentration.

The correct preparation of black tea

Making black tea is relatively simple. Here are some steps to get the most out of your black tea:

1. Use fresh, filtered water and heat it to about 95-100 °C.

2. Place a quantity of tea, about one teaspoon per cup, into a teapot or cup.

3. Pour the hot water over the tea leaves and let the tea brew for 3-5 minutes, depending on the desired strength.

4. After the brewing time, strain the tea and enjoy. You can drink it neat or add milk, lemon or sugar as you like.

Black tea is a versatile drink that can be enjoyed both hot and chilled. Experiment with different varieties and preparation methods to discover your personal favorite tea!
