Black tea is typically the most robust, strongly-flavored, and–when properly prepared–most caffeinated of the tea varieties. After the tea leaves are picked and allowed to wither slightly, moisture evaporates from the leaf and is replaced by oxygen. This process is called oxidation and it is what gives black tea its defining characteristics: dark leaf appearance, bigger flavor/body, and fuller body.

Brewing Black Tea

Black tea is prepared with boiling water. Steep time ranges from 2-4 minutes. It’s important to stop the steeping process as black tea will get very bitter if it’s brewed too long.
