First originating in China in the 17th century, black tea is also referred to as red tea due to its colour when brewed. It is more oxidized than oolong, yellow, white and green teas, creating a taste that is generally stronger in flavour.
Black tea has retained its flavour for several years, and for this reason it became a valuable trading commodity and even a de facto currency in the Far East well into the 19th century. Today it is a valuable export that is enjoyed in almost every country around the globe.
