Black Tea 紅茶

Black Tea is fully oxidized and harvested from the shrub, Camellia sinensis. Its name came from the natural form of its’ leaves, which is a deep reddish tone. Black teas are generally stronger in flavour than green teas and other semi-fermented teas. Some popular and well-known black teas are Keemun Black Tea, and Yunnan Black Tea. In addition, black teas can be blended with flowers such as rose buds, or osmanthus.
