Organic Black Tea
- Rich, robust flavor
- Ideal choice for people with sensitive stomachs
- Significant antioxidant profile
- More caffeine than Green Tea
- Certified Organic
Black teas are fully fermented teas. During the fermentation process, the oxygen causes the leaves to turn from green to near black. Black tea is the ideal choice for people with a sensitive stomach as the fermentation process of tea leaves removes tannins, substances that can cause slight discomfort in a sensitive stomach. Though some antioxidants are lost during fermentation, black teas still maintain significant antioxidant profiles and have been enjoyed for centuries for their rich, robust flavor. Certified Organic.
Flavor: Smooth, earthy, full and well-rounded flavor that traverses softly across the palate
Directions: Add the amount of botanicals per a recipe, as desired, or as directed by a health practitioner. The proper way of extracting botanicals depends on parts used. Flowers, fruits and leaves can usually be steeped or decocted (boiling over fire) while stems, barks and roots typically require decocting.
In a Desktop Botanical Garden™ Glass Tea & Elixir Maker, add 1 part botanical(s) and 5-8 parts water, steep or decoct for 5-20 minutes. You can boil water directly in the Elixir Maker. Repeat this process for 2nd or 3rd extraction until all active constituents have been extracted.
