Black tea comes from the tea plant camellia sinensis, which is also the source of white, green, yellow, and oolong teas. Unlike white and green tea, black tea undergoes a fermentation process which makes its tea leaves become more oxidized. It is also the reason why black tea has less antioxidant than white and green tea, but has more caffeine than them. In fact, black tea has the highest caffeine content among the other kinds of tea. Many times you will find black tea that has been mixed with other flavors such as our Strawberry Surprise and Fuzzy Peach Black Tea options, as they have all that caffeine with the addition of some tasty fruit flavors to your black...
