The heart healthy tea.
All tea originates from the same exact plant—Camellia sinensis. It’s how the plant’s leaves are processed that define if tea becomes black, green, oolong, white, and so on. During oxidation, oxygen interacts with the tea plant’s cell walls to turn the leaves the rich dark brown to black color that black tea leaves are famous for. Oxidation alters the flavor profile of a black tea as well, helping add malty, fruity, or even smoky notes!
- Black tea contains flavonoids, which are beneficial for heart health. Studies have found that regularly drinking black tea may help reduce the risk of heart disease.

- Black tea is a great non-sweetened beverage that can help improve the use of insulin and reduce blood sugar.
- Black tea can help improve focus due to its content of caffeine and an amino acid called L-theanine. This amino acid increases alpha wave activity in the brain, which can help improve focus and alertness.
