Black Tea

Black Tea

Black tea is more oxidized than green, oolong, and white teas. It is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, undergoing a process that includes withering (sounds funny, we know), rolling, fermentation (or oxidation), and drying. This process is what gives black tea its characteristic dark colour and strong flavour. Black tea is the most common type of tea consumed worldwide (black, no sugar for us, thanks!). 
In kombucha making, the first and very important step at Remedy is to brew a huge pot of tea. We use organic black tea in our kombucha brew for its rich superior taste. 

Remedy Kombucha contains 23mg of tea polyphenols per 100ml serve. We use only the best quality tea, which is why our brews pack a punch of tea polyphenols. 


  • Consuming black tea may help reduce several risk factors for heart disease, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, and elevated triglyceride levels.

  • Consuming black tea on a moderate basis may be associated with a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes by improving insulin sensitivity.

  • Black tea contains a group of polyphenols, including catechins, theaflavins, and thearubigins, which have antioxidant properties that may help to reduce cell damage in the body.
