Tobe Nwigwe's "Hella Black" is unapologetic, sharp, and powerful just like our tea. Hella Black Tea is stronger, bolder, and richer than traditional green tea. Some people would describe black tea as earthy, smoky, and spiced. Black tea is the completely oxidized leaves of the camellia sinensis plant. Known as "red tea" in China, for the color of its infused cup, black tea is hearty and full-flavored. This tea has about half the amount of caffeine than a cup of coffee. Though tea is lower in caffeine, it’s rich in L-theanine, a powerful antioxidant that also stimulates your brain. Unlike caffeine, L-theanine may provide anti-stress effects by increasing your brain’s alpha waves, which help you calm down and relax. This counteracts the arousing effect of caffeine and gives you a relaxed but alert mental state without feeling drowsy. If you still need a daily boost, but don't want to use highly caffeinated coffee. Give this tea a shot.
