Origin of black tea
Black tea (also known as black tea) is made from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis tea plant. The origin of black tea is from green tea, but what makes it different is the processing process. Black tea is made from fresh tea leaves that are fermented (oxidized) from 60 to 100%.
Around the 16th-17th centuries, black tea was first discovered in China. Only then was it imported to Europe. Over time, black tea became a familiar drink for Western people. During the French colonial period, Vietnam was also one of the main plantations exporting black tea to Europe.
