Ingredients

Referred to as ‘Red tea’ in China, a description of the colour of the liquid. In contrast, the English term ‘black tea’ refers to the colour of the oxidized leaves. Black tea is considered to be fully oxidised, although there is still a range of oxidation possible in manufacturing black tea.

To produce black tea, the tea is rolled and left to rest (typically for a period of 2 - 2.5 hours) in a warm damp environment to promote oxidation. Heat is applied to the tea once the desired level of oxidation has been accomplished.
