The source and origin
Where did this heavenly tea originate? The only teas consumed in ancient China were the green teas and the oolong or semi-oxidized tea. According to some legends and historical narratives, when an army took shelter in tea factory in the Fujian province, the production in the factory was held up. The tea was left out for much longer and they became more oxidized and this resulted in a crop of darker tea leaves. They dried these tea leaves by smoking them over pine wood, thereby creating the first ever black teas in the world.
The first black tea was the Lapsang Souchong—Lapsang meaning high mountains and Souchong meaning small leaves of the tea tree. The British and Dutch traders named it ‘black tea’ when they brought it back to Europe and England. Today, black tea is grown in China and in India also. Black tea is known to retain its flavour for several years. It is stronger in taste, more delicious than other teas and is arguably, one of the most popular teas in the world.
What makes strawberry decaf special?
While black tea is produced by oxidizing the leaf of the plant, Camelia sinensis, the decaf tea contains absolutely no caffeine. The decaffeination process removes not only caffeine, but also polyphenols and some antioxidants, but that does not mean that decaf tea is not healthy. It is rich in all the other benefits of black tea, like boosting your heart health, lowering the risk of diabetes, increasing immunity levels in the body and keeping your digestive system healthy. What’s more, it contains the rich flavour of ripe and juicy strawberries. It is said that the strawberry was first cultivated in Rome and was Emperor Nero’s favourite fruit, and ever since has become one of the world’s most loved fruits. As it does not contain caffeine, the tea can be enjoyed at any time of the day, either as an afternoon pick-me-up or an evening de-stressor.
