Black tea is probably the result of the need to be able to transport tea over the long journeys from Asia to Europe and to keep it in good quality for a longer period of time. With black tea, the fermentation process is complete.
The leaves are first withered and then twisted, usually with the help of a machine. This process differs from that for green tea because it does not require the leaf to be given a specific shape, but to allow for the internal structure and an enzymatic reaction.
The next step is fermentation, which takes about 3 hours, depending on the leaves and the tradition of the region. This process gives the leaves their characteristic color and gives the drink its typical flavor profile.
