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 flavourful 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: Our Assam black tea ranks among the finest black teas on the market. As such, it possesses all the nuance and depth of a fine wine. In short, we felt it deserved a little respect. A few terms to start with: First, some of the good qualities to look for: Croppy: No, this doesn’t mean it was produced by men with bowl-cut hairdos. Croppy is a tasting term that describes much sought after bright creamy liquor. Most high quality second flush Assams usually display this characteristic. Brisk: Otherwise known as the ooh-la-la factor - a tea with a lively vivacious flavour. Biscuity: A term professional tasters use to describe a well-fired Assam - perfect temperature + perfect timing = Biscuity! (It should here be noted that all good Assam teas pair well with biscuits of almost any variety.) By now your kettle should be nice and hot. Infuse your tea, pause for 3 – 5 minutes; strain; add a dash of milk and a pinch of sugar if you like, then relax, just enjoy every sip of this very fine tea.
