Red tea (in the West, ‘Black tea’) is a highly fermented tea leaf that has a very rich, intense flavour.

According to studies, red teas can absorb heavy metals and toxins, as well as break them down. Medical experiments show that red tea alkaloids excite the central nervous system, increase concentration, and improve mental abilities, which strengthens memory. Alkaloids also stimulate the cardiovascular system and increase heartbeat, thereby accelerating blood circulation. It has a revitalising effect and helps in digestion processes.

The most common production process: harvesting – withering – rolling – oxidation – drying.

This type of tea has a rich and deep taste with notes of honey and chocolate.
