Black

Black tea is a variety of tea that is more oxidized (fermented) than the oolong, green, and white varieties. Generally stronger in flavor with a dark reddish color and sweet aroma, they contain more caffeine than the less oxidized teas. Black tea retains its flavor for several years.

It can be used to add weight to a blend, or enjoyed alone if you prefer a full bodied tea.
