    Benefits: The health benefits of black tea have been well documented for quite some time, and if you are thinking of adding more black tea to your diet, then its health benefits likely have played a big part in your decision. The big difference between black tea and other types of tea, like white and green tea, is that it is more oxidized. As a result of this increased oxidation, black tea is a lot more flavorful and caffeine-laden than its counterparts which do not enjoy this amount of oxidation. Drinking black tea is also help to reduce cardiovascular problems, prevent cancer and lower risk of diabetes.  

    Fun to know: The flavor combination of apple and cinnamon spice is as American as apple pie - that’s because it is the flavor of apple pie. But although apples have a long history in the United States, the cultivation of apple trees is thought to have originated in ancient Rome. The Romans brought the trees with them to England, then part of the Roman Empire, and in turn, the British brought them to Massachusetts. Specifically, it is believed that John Endicott, one of the early governors of the Massachusetts colony brought the first trees to North America in 1629. From there, the apple spread across the States thanks to the hard work of a man named John Chapman, otherwise known as Johnny Appleseed. Johnny Appleseed traveled the country on foot planting apples wherever he went. Somewhere along the line someone struck upon the idea of baking apples sprinkled with the spicy flavor of cinnamon. We’re sure glad they did. Brewing a pot of this tea is like baking an apple pie in a teapot – an absolutely delicious tea.
