black teas

Black tea, or Red tea as it is known in China, is a traditional style of tea that utilizes all five basic steps, but is allowed to oxidize more completely. Originating about 450 years ago in the Fujian province of China, black tea tends to contain a high content of caffeine and tannins, which give the tea its characteristic dark color. Offering what is considered to be the strongest flavors, Black tea is the most popular type of tea, and makes up the bulk of the world's tea production.
