Black tea



Available in 10 & 25 tea bags

Overshadowed by Green tea in the research front, Black tea is still the most consumed tea in the world –preferred by at least 80% of tea drinkers for its full-bodied flavour and aroma. Latest research suggests that black tea is just as effective as green tea mainly due to a compound called theaflavin that exhibits an abundance of anti-oxidative activity, much like green tea. Latest findings show that orthodox Black tea helps against cancer, heart diseases and diabetes; encourages weight loss; lowers cholesterol; and brings about mental alertness in addition to antimicrobial qualities.
