Alce Nero organic tea is grown in the highest areas of the Nilgiri Plateau, in south India, and the famous Darjeeling region found at the foot of the Himalayas, where the expert hands of Unitea workers carefully grow and harvest the buds and young leaves from the tea plant, the Camellia Sinensis. It is mostly women that work in these plantations and they benefit from the increased community services that are guaranteed by selling to Fairtrade companies. Black tea contains alkaloids, natural plant substances, one of which is theine, a substance which is similar to caffeine but which has a lesser and more gradual effect. Black tea takes its name from the way in which it is processed, whereby it undergoes rolling to accelerate enzymatic oxidation, breaking the membranes of the leaves and turning them brown.
