PEREGRINE MOUNTAIN TGFOP1 © Wise Tea Garden .com
  Black tea is a fully-fermented tea and its infusion has a bright reddish colour, a rich aroma and flavour. According to the results of research conducted at the University College of London, regular intake of black tea can help speed recovery from stress. A group of 75 men who drank black tea four times a day for 6 weeks were found to have lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol than a control group who drank a fake tea substitute. The tea drinkers also reported a greater feeling of relaxation after performing tasks specially designed to raise the stress levels. It is unknown which ingredients in tea are responsible for the relaxing effects.

It is considered that green and white teas are generally have more polyphenols than other types of tea, but note that some high grown luxury black teas have higher levels of antioxidants than low grown green and white teas. One cup of tea contains approximately 50mg of caffeine, depending on the strength and size of the cup (coffee: 65-175mg of caffeine per cup). Grades of Black Tea »

Note: Some of the top quality Black Teas such as Rose Tea, Limited Edition Teas such as Peregrine Mountain 1st Flush TGFOP Special, or Indian Assam may become slightly "creamy" if they kept in a tea pot overnight. It's because of a higher content of tannin.
All grades of tea contain tannin (it is responsible for an astringent brew and bitterness of a tea regardless of its original quality), except Pu-erh, which is the most fermented tea, with a very low content of tannin.
Teas, which have a higher tannin content will become cloudy if left in a tea pot for some time - this is typical of fine Indian Assam teas for instance. Please feel free to drink them, but do not overdose. Also, top quality teas may cloud when iced due to their naturally high polyphenol level.
FYI Tea is a continuous crop. It takes three years to grow from a cutting to a tea bush that will produce harvestable leaves. The bush will then produce leaves each day for another 50 years therefore each Tea Estate absorbs more CO2 than it emits.
As you know, Darjeeling is to premium tea what Champagne is to fine wines. The region is located high in the Himalayas at an average altitude of 2143m above sea level and produces light liquoring teas with a regional character known as muscatel. Estates in the neighbouring regions of Nepal and Sikkim produce teas that are similar in character but usually slightly stronger in the cup.
Kenya Estates don't use pesticides and herbicides, because pests typically damage tea crops aren't found at their high altitudes. Instead, the estates use Nitrogen as a natural fertilizer making them almost organic by default. As a further way of improving yield, every 25 years, fields are left fallow for 2 years as and replanted.
Now, almost all tea Estates in Sri Lanka now pack their tea in paper sacks. Switching over from the centuries old tea chest to the paper sack has helped reduce deforestation.
