Ingredients: Blend of selected Black Teas from Assam, Ceylon and Darjeeling.

Origin of Black Tea

Black tea is a blend of the oldest leaves of one of the "Camellia sinensis" bushes. Compared to other teas, black tea has a higher percentage of oxidation. This difference will give black tea a more intense flavour. After harvesting, the green leaves go through an osmosis process lasting up to 20 hours. Later, they are rolled by hand or by machines. It is at this stage that the tea leaves start their oxidation process. Finally, the leaves are left to dry naturally.

Due to the high caffeine content, Black Tea can influence the increase of body energy and the unbalancing of the nervous system. Choose to consume it during the day, naturally and without added sugar. Take it to reduce fatigue, lose weight and relieve poor digestion. Black Tea may stimulate body energy for 4 to 6 hours.

Darjeeling: curiosities

Darjeeling or Darjiling is a city divided into hills and plains, situated in the state of West Bengal in the North of India. The word 'Darjeeling' is derived from the words 'dorje' and 'ling' that originate from the expression 'thunder on earth'. Darjeeling Black Tea is known as the 'Champagne of Teas' or 'Champagne of Black Teas'. This tea is remembered for its slightly sweet taste and floral aroma.

How to make iced tea:
