Black tea is so-called because of its dark colour due to a complete oxidation, turning the tea leaves black. It was discovered in China around 1590 and quickly became the most popular drink after water, especially in the East. The advantage of black tea is that it retains its flavour for several years.
Black tea is known for its medicinal virtues: antioxidants, reducing the risks of heart attacks and cardiovascular problems, improving blood circulation and fighting against illnesses linked to ageing.
