  21. 21.

  22. 22. Black Tea <ul><li>Black tea leaves are first spread on trays and withered in the sun for 18-24 hours </li></ul><ul><li>After drying the leaves are rolled and twisted in order to break down their cell walls and accelerate the oxidation process. This causes the leaves to ferment and to release components responsible for their characteristic color, aroma and taste. </li></ul><ul><li>The last stage is firing in order to stop fermentation and dry the leaves completely. </li></ul><ul><li>Color of the leaves: dark brown or black </li></ul>
