Black Tea Extracts, Leaves & Powders
When tea leaves are picked from the Camelia sinensis plant, they immediately begin to oxidize. Imagine a green leaf falling from a tree – it turns brown, weathered, and breaks down. On tea farms, this process is carefully controlled – the green chlorophyll of the leaf oxidizes slowly, and as the leaf turns dark, new bold and malty flavors appear – the distinct richness of black tea. Black tea can be produced from all varieties of the tea plant and are commonly known and categorized by their country of origin or terroir – the Indian subspecies of the plant is known for its malty, full -bodied liquors and strong aromos, caffeine rich cup, while the Chinese subspecies produces a smoother, mellow black tea.
