We call black tea the types of teas that have a degree of oxidation of 100%. This is because during the manufacturing process the cells of the leaves are broken. Consequently, it causes a chemical reaction with the oxygen in the air, resulting in a blackish or brownish color in the strands. We can perceive smoky notes, wood, tobacco and cocoa; in others, floral, red fruit and raisin notes abound.

Although black tea is often paired with sweet food, such as scones, cakes, or chocolate, it still makes a great companion to savory food. Go ahead and try the black tea accompanied by cheeses, cold cuts, cheese dumplings, stuffed breads, cakes or some meats!
