Black Teas

Black Tea 红茶系列 is the most typical of teas: full flavored, distinct in color and aroma. It has been oxidized more than its siblings (Green, Oolong and Pu’ur) which gives it its characteristics. Black tea has exposure to the air after picking allowing for his transformation. Many people call this fermentation, but that is a bit of a misnomer, since nothing actually ferments. After exposed to air, the tea is roasted giving it the rich, dark colors and nose you are used to.
