Black Teas

Well over over 80% of the tea consumed in the western world is black tea. The world’s finest black teas are produced in India (Assam, Darjeeling and Nilgiri), Sri Lanka (Ceylon) and China.

Health Benefits: Black tea is a powerful source of anti-oxidants that can slow down the aging process and help prevent a wide variety of diseases. Medical research suggests that black tea can assist in lowering cholesterol and regulating blood sugar. Much lower in caffeine than coffee, black tea gently stimulates the heart and circulatory system. By keeping blood vessels soft and lowering blood pressure, black tea can help prevent heart disease and strokes.
