Black tea is known for its amazing health benefits. It contains theaflavins and thearubigins which are known to reduce the signs of aging and reduce stress. It is also known to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer and even Parkinson's Disease.
Use 1 heaping teaspoon of Golden Buds per cup. Let your mineral or filtered water come down just below a full boil before steeping from 2 to 3 minutes. Some tea connoisseurs will say a tea this fine should only be drank out of Yixing clay, or Chinese traditional cups. We usually have ours in regular tea cups and even infuse the leaves more than once. You sometimes get the best flavor on the second infusion.
