In England, you can not imagine a traditional afternoon snack without it, but its roots are in China, where it comes from. Today, black tea is the most popular around the world. Why should we enjoy it too?

For many years, tea was known in Europe only as black tea. And so it became synonymous with tea itself. It is mainly grown in China, India and Sri Lanka.

What is black tea? It is the leaves of a tea plant that have been fermented. This gives it a caffeine boost, unlike other teas. It gives us energy and is therefore drunk by people who don't like coffee but need a pick-me-up. Also, the caffeine is released gradually, so it lasts much longer. When we drink a cup, we can feel the effects for the next six hours. The fermentation also acts as a preservative, so it stays fresh for a long time.

Black tea contains many useful substances, such as vitamin B1, theobromine and theophylline. According to studies, black tea has a good effect on cholesterol and blood sugar levels. It also promotes the production of the hormones serotonin and dopamine, thus having a mood-lifting and nerve-calming effect. It is a powerful antioxidant and thus a kind of youth elixir. It improves digestion, but should be avoided by people with gastric ulcers or stomach problems.

Its strength depends not only on the amount used, but also on the duration of the infusion. One teaspoon per cup is usually sufficient. In this case, it is not necessary to pay much attention to the temperature of the water. It can also be infused with boiled water only, but as with other teas, it is better to let it steep at about 80 degrees.

Pour the tea leaves over it and let it steep for a few minutes. The longer, the stronger it will be. If you prefer only light notes, two minutes will be enough, if you want a strong black tea, let it steep for six minutes. You can add different spices, agave, plant milk or vegan cream or lemon.

For example, in our offer you can find a very tasty dark pu-erh, pressed into beautiful nests and wrapped in fine paper. It has a pleasant sweet, nutty taste.
