Black tea is a type of fully oxidized tea and it was invented in Tong Mu Guan in Fujian province, China about 500 years ago. For more details, please read our blog The Origin of the First Black Tea, Lapsang Souchong. Chinese black tea, literally "Red Tea" in Chinese, is more delicate, fruity, and full bodied, with a more complex flavor.
