Black tea's distinctive qualities result from extensive processing in comparison to green, oolong or white teas. After harvesting, the tea leaves are dried on racks until they become supple. They are then rolled and cooled, which enables the natural juices to emerge – and the leaves to darken. Finally, heat is applied to the tea leaves to stop further oxidation and seal in the flavor and aroma.
A six ounce cup of black tea has approximately 40 mg of caffeine. While preparation of black tea may vary by blend and and taste preference, typical brewing guidelines include using two teaspoons per 12 to 16 oz pot. Boiling water (212F) should be used for brewing and steeping time ranges from three to seven minutes.
