Black Teas

All true teas are made from the same plant, camellia sinensis, and thus have the same amount of caffeine. However, due to processing and packing density, tea as it is served per teaspoon may have more caffeine, especially black teas.  During processing, black tea leaves are fully oxidized. Black teas are strong, robust, and reflect the earth from where they are grown.  Enjoy black teas from around the world:
