A strong black tea can have a better effect that coffee in waking up the brain without the jittery, laxative or diuretic effects that coffee has.

Black tea has many properties. After fermentation from green tea to black tea, about 15% of the catechins remain unchanged and the rest convert into
theaflavines and thearubigins. These polyphenols give black tea its dark colour.

Tea has a long history of use dating back over 5000 years and been used medicinally in many Asian countries. It has now been verified by research that the antioxidants in Black tea confer health benefits to the cardiovascular system, brain, digestion and metabolic system. If we look at the number of phytochemical constituents we can see why. Black tea, is the oxidised leaf of Camellia sinensis, contains nearly 4000 bioactive compounds, with the health promoting effects largely attributed to the catechins, together with the polyphenols. A review of the unique black tea constituents reveals antioxidant capacities (1).

A simple cup of tea every day can do wonders for your health espeically as a preventative therapy.

All of our teas are organic or wild harvested from natural surroundings. Enjoy!
