A Small Note On What Makes A Black Tea:

Black Tea comes from leaves of the tea plant (camellia sinensis) that have been withered, rolled, oxidised and dried. During rolling the cell structure of the leaves are broken, releasing enzymes that interact with air and cause oxidation. Oxygen changes the leaf's properties and accounts for the darker colours and strong rich flavours characteristic of black teas. It is this oxidation process that makes Black Tea different than Green Tea.
