Black Tea, derived from the Camellia sinensis plant, is the most oxidized among all tea types, which imparts its darker hue and richer flavor. Originating from China, the history of black tea stretches back over thousands of years, transitioning from a medicinal elixir to an everyday beverage enjoyed globally. The process of fermenting and fully oxidizing the tea leaves distinguishes black tea from green or oolong teas, resulting in a unique profile of flavonoids, theaflavins, and thearubigins. These compounds are behind many of the health benefits attributed to black tea. Consumed regularly, black tea can aid in improving cardiovascular health, reducing cholesterol levels, and boosting metabolism. Additionally, it contains moderate levels of caffeine, which can enhance alertness and cognitive function. For the skin, black tea offers a treasure trove of benefits. Its abundance of antioxidants fights against free radical damage, thereby reducing signs of premature aging. The tannins present in black tea have astringent properties, helping to tighten the skin and reduce puffiness. Moreover, its anti-inflammatory qualities can soothe skin irritations and redness. Today, inspired by its myriad benefits, black tea extracts are increasingly being incorporated into skincare products, delivering both health and beauty benefits to users.
