Immunity Booster:

Black tea is packed with antioxidants and other compounds that can help boost your immunity. The antioxidants in black tea, called polyphenols, can help protect your body against damage from free radicals and minimize oxidative stress. Furthermore, the tannins found in black tea have natural antibacterial and anti-viral properties, making it an essential tea to drink during flu season. One of the best black teas to try for an immunity boost is the Organic Assam Breakfast, which is known for its rich, malty and earthy flavour.


Digestive Health:

Black tea contains compounds that can aid in digestion. Research has shown that black tea consumption may help reduce the risk of digestive disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease, constipation, and acid reflux. The catechins in black tea can also help prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in your gut and promote healthy gut flora. If you are looking to support your digestive health, try Genuine Tea's Black Currant black tea, which is perfect for after-meal indulgence.


Heart Health:

Another significant benefit of black tea is its positive impact on heart health. The antioxidants in black tea can help lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol levels and promote blood vessel health. Additionally, black tea contains flavonoids that help improve the elasticity of blood vessels, making them more resilient to blockages. Our Genuine Tea Earl Grey, made with organic loose-leaf Ceylon black tea and natural bergamot oil, is perfect for heart health. One of the most popular teas worldwide, Earl Grey, not only has a unique and distinctive taste profile but also provides health benefits to your cardiovascular system.


Mental Health:

Black tea is shown to have stress-reducing effects and can help boost cognitive function. The caffeine and L-Theanine present in black tea can help improve focus, alertness, and creativity while calming your mind and promoting relaxation. Drinking black tea can also help improve your mood and reduce anxiety. One of the best black teas to try for mental health is our Labrador Loose Leaf Black Tea, which is low in caffeine and high in L-Theanine.


Unique Features:

Black tea is a versatile tea that offers a unique taste profile depending on brewing time and method. It can be enjoyed hot or cold, plain or with milk and sugar, infused with other flavours and spices, or enjoyed as a cream-based tea. Additionally, black tea can be brewed stronger or weaker to suit your taste preferences. Genuine Tea's Black Tea Collection is 100% organic and is sourced from Fair Trade farms that ensure ethical and sustainable practices are adhered to, creating a tea product that is health and eco-friendly.
