Black Tea

Traditional production of tea begins with hand harvesting. In black tea, the harvest is withered then rolled to release the enzymes within the cell structure of the leaves. The leaves are spread out on drying trays to facilitate oxidation, or fermentation. It is this oxidation process that changes the leaf color from green to black. Finally, the leaves are fired in ovens to stop the process and dried again to remove all moisture.
