Benefits: Higher in caffeine due to the oxidation process, than its green or white counterparts, it is still high in anti-oxidants though. Caffeine – the levels in a cup of tea varies. It is in the process that causes this – 1st is oxidation, 2nd temperature of water, 3rd length of time it spends in water. Generally speaking the greater of all these 3 things the higher the caffeine levels. Caffeine in tea is also slightly different chemically than the caffeine in coffee. Though coffee will give one that much needed boost of focus to the brain first thing in the morning – it is also short lived. Caffeine in tea is slower on the uptake but levels off – to help keep one alert longer.
Steeping: Black tea likes a higher temperature water in the plus 95-100c range to be steeped for 4-5 minutes, and is usually good for one cup of tea.
