Looking for an easy-to-find brand?
Try Adagio Tea
. In fact, you just found it.
Highest antioxidant level black tea?
In the world of tea, this is an oxymoron. Black tea is the most processed and therefore has the least antioxidants. But some antioxidants are still there and so are their effects. Just not as many antioxidants as say, a white tea. Even the differences b/w these teas aren't terribly great.
Which high-antioxidant black adagio tea?
Well, the Darjeelings and the Yunnan Gold don't look as burnt to hell as the others. However, I tried Adagio's first flush darjeeling and I thought it was a green tea, so if you're looking for a solid black go for the yunnan gold. Everyone seems to like it a great deal.
Looking for documentation?
I'd be happy to begin research if you would be generous enough to offer me a grant for scientific study on this topic.
One more thing:
please, please, please don't drink tea only for health effects. It tastes good, too, you know.
