Like all teas, Fraser Tea black teas are derived from the Camellia sinensis plant. Most consider it a shrub or small tree and many tea varieties are developed from this same plant. In particular, black tea is oxidized on a much higher level than white, green or oolong teas. This process alters its color and emboldens its flavor. Expect a more robust taste from a black tea compared to any other option. That's one reason it might as well be considered the coffee of the tea world.
