This fully oxidized black tea has been used for over thousands of years to promote overall well-being. Fermentation is a tea production style in which the tea leaves undergo microbial fermentation and oxidation after they are dried and rolled. This process is a Chinese specialty and produces tea known as Hei Cha, commonly translated as dark, or black tea (this type of tea is completely different from what in West is known as “black tea”, which in China is called “red tea”). Enjoy this strong and full taste complemented by a smooth vanilla aroma.
The natural vanilla extract is made from the pods of the vanilla plant, commonly found in tropical areas of the world, and is widely used to flavor foods and beverages. It is also used in medicines and fragrances. Studies have shown that both the flavor and aroma of vanilla can offer some health benefits and produce a calming effect.
