What is Black Tea?

Black tea is one of the most beloved drinks in the world. Black tea is created when tea leaves are oxidized, withered, rolled and left to dry. During this process, flavanols (catechins) oxidize with the air and create a unique color and flavor. The most consistent description of a black tea is strong, full bodied, flavor and a dark-brown infusion.
