Black Tea

Black tea also comes from the tea plant. To manufacture black tea, the tea leaves and buds are plucked and withered to reduce moisture. Then, they may be left whole and rolled or undergo a cut-tear-curl process. Finally, the green leaves and tips are fully oxidized, becoming dark brown (tips becoming golden), and dried. This oxidation process is sometimes referred to as ”fermentation” but this is a misnomer. Black tea is primarily grown in India, Sri Lanka, China and Kenya.
