How to Make tea using Black Tea
Generally the more tea leaves used in the brewing process the stronger the tea will be. Another major factor in the taste and strength of your tea is the time that the tea is left to steep (brew). Ideally you want to time how long you leave the tea leaves to brew and then remove the tea from the pot or mug.
Benefits of Black Tea
There is much talk about the benefits of black tea where some are supported by science. A lot of the medical research into the health benefits of tea look at black tea consumption and investigate the effects of so many cups of black tea per day. Drinking regular cups of black tea may help prevent some medical conditions but caution is advised on the strength of the claims made.
Black tea tends to have a slightly higher caffeine content compared to the green and white teas.
The best advice is to drink a cup of black tea because you enjoy a good cup of tea rather than as a medicinal drink.
