Black tea, the leaves of which are fermented in contrast to green tea, was already a customary element of Asian tea culture centuries ago. It is now one of the most popular types of tea throughout the world. Due to its high caffeine content, it is frequently seen as an alternative to coffee. Black tea has a pleasantly bitter and aromatic taste.
The famous Assam tea originates from the north Indian region of the same name. It is picked exclusively by hand and has soft, malty, sweet characteristics. Its intense, spicy flavour and important nutrients such as vitamin B1 and phenolic compounds make it one of the most commonly drunk tea varieties around the world.
