The History of Black Tea

Why Seven Teas Chooses Real Black Tea
70-Calorie Classics | June 23rd, 2022

Black tea’s bright history dates back to the 17th century, when green tea and oolong leaves were oxidized in China to lengthen their storage life. As a result, the leaves developed a dark red color, higher levels of caffeine, and a smokier, bolder flavor. Centuries later, this caffeinated treat is enjoyed all over the world. 

Like most teas, black tea contains powerful polyphenols and catechins, naturally occurring compounds in plant-based foods that help protect our bodies from the negative effects of oxidative stress. It also helps improve focus, boost your metabolism, and increase your heart health. On top of all of that, many believe it can help your oral and gut health, too. There’s so much healing power in these amazing, oxidized leaves. 

Our black tea is non-GMO, ethically sourced from organic farms, and always Fair Trade. We gently steep real, whole tea leaves in mountain spring water to craft offerings like Spot O’ Honey Earl Grey Tea without any doubt that you’re experiencing the highest-quality product Mother Nature could offer.

Black tea is so wonderfully versatile, too. If you’re looking for a boost of clean energy, pick up a 70-Calorie Raspberry Rojo. If you’re feeling nostalgic, sip on fruity sips of Georgia Peach Iced Tea or Uptown Half and Half! The ways and reasons to enjoy black tea are virtually endless – it’s up to you to decide how to embrace this amazing gift of Nature.
