black tea is the most consumed and popular of all teas due to its bold strong flavours.
it can be taken with milk, cream or blended with other interesting flavours.
black teas are 100% oxidised. in addition to possessing antioxidant properties, they also have unique enzymes that promote alertness and energy. they have similar amounts of caffeine as green or white teas and can be stored for a longer period of time.
black teas in general pair very well with savoury foods or dark meats and when blended with other flavours can also enhance the taste of other dishes.
puerh teas: pu'erh (also pu'er) is one of the most unusual teas. this tea is different in processing, storage, and taste from any other tea. because of its rarity and unique characteristics, pu'erhs have a connoisseur following like few other teas. it is also the only tea that is actually fermented and not just oxidized.
