Black Tea and its benefits

Black Tea

Black Tea is a type of tea that is more oxidized than Oolong, Green and White teas. All types are made from leaves of the plant Camellia sinensis. Black tea is generally stronger in flavor than the less oxidized teas.

Benefits of Black Tea

During the processing of Tea, full fermentation results in Black Tea. In the making of Black Tea, fermentation promotes the oxidation of polyphenols,which will produce Thearubigin and Theaflavin. They are the key factors that form the color and flavor of Black Tea. Besides adjusting the color, Thearubigin has many health benefits. It can combine with cholesterol in stomach and intestines and reduce the amount of cholesterol absorbed from food. Thus Thearubigin is helpful for protecting heart from hyperlipidemia and heart disease without any side-effect. Though a lot of benefits are being underlined by researchers, however some are still debatable.
