Cinnamon Black Tea, 35 pyramids.
Why black tea and cinnamon?
It is a fully fermented tea, obtained from the leaves of Camellia assamica. For this, its leaves are rolled, dried and macerated, which are left for a longer time in order for its components to react with each other.
As a consequence, an oxidation process occurs that is known by the name of “fermentation”, although we must bear in mind that neither yeast nor bacteria participate in this process.
We are, without a doubt, before a wonderful tea, which perfectly combines the slightly milder flavor of black tea with the great aromatic power of cinnamon.
