Black tea is processed by spreading the freshly plucked leaves to wither, giving off a fruity odour. While still soft, the leaves are rolled to release the chemicals which gives each leaf its characteristic flavour and colour. Leaves are then spread, in a cool humid place, to absorb air, causing the leaf colour to change form green to black colour and acquires its distinctive tea aroma. Orange-red is the best quality liquid colour for black tea.
