Black-TeaBlack tea is among the most widely enjoyed teas in the world. Originating in China in the 17th century, black tea spread rapidly throughout the world and found great acceptance in the West. Black tea is a known favorite, especially among the British, who have developed a rich culture around tea. One of the features of black tea is its wide array of production areas and drinking methods. Black teas are produced with different characteristics according to the production area, tea estate and the season when the leaves are picked. Although flavors vary, high-quality black teas abound in natural aroma, flavor and nutrients that are reminiscent of flowers, fruits and herbs. Another appeal of black teas is that they can be used to create a variety of different drinks. Not only by adding milk or lemon but also with the addition of fruits, herbs, spices and liquors. Iced tea is another popular option.
