Black tea is packed with healthy antioxidants. The phenolic content in tea refers to the phenols and polyphenols, the natural plant compounds which are found in tea. These chemical compounds can affect the flavor and mouthfeel and are known to provide potential health benefits. Polyphenols in tea are catechins, theaflavins, tannins, and flavonoids. Polyphenols can help protect your cells from DNA damage. Based on scientific research, black tea provides anti-cancer benefits, is good for digestion, and has beneficial effects on your skin, hair and teeth.
Our collection of varietal (non-flavored) black tea range from brisk, malty, smoky, and some have a wonderful fruity or sweet note that lingers on your palate.
If you like your tea strong we recommend increasing the amount of leaf per cup until you find the right strength and follow the steeping instructions. Steeping the tea longer than the recommended time does not increase the strength of the cup. Too long of a steep can singe the leaves and results in a bitter and astringent cup.
