Black tea is the most common tea in North America. The best black tea is produced when withered tea leaves are rolled and allowed to oxidize and dry, developing natural flavor, color, and body in the leaf. Boasting numerous health benefits, black tea contains about half the caffeine of coffee and twice that of green tea. You can buy loose leaf black tea leaves, organic or black tea bags and the drink is popular iced or hot as a breakfast tea, often enjoyed with sugar, milk, or lemon.

How to Make Iced Black Tea
Bring fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil in a kettle. Choose your favorite Republic of Tea variety and measure 8 teaspoons of full-leaf tea into an infuser, or 8 tea bags, and place into a heat-resistant pitcher. Pour the water over the tea leaves or tea bags. Cover and steep to taste, generally from 2 to 5 minutes depending on the variety you have chosen. Remove infuser or tea bags. Let tea cool to room temperature. Pour your cooled tea over ice into stylish glasses. Sweeten to taste. Garnish as desired. Sip and savor your iced tea.
