Black Tea Benefits:
Antioxidant
Soothing

Black Tea possesses high concentrations of vitamins, minerals, essential oils, tannins, and polyphenols. Tannins and polyphenols, especially contribute towards the antioxidant properties in Black Tea skin care products. Additionally, black tea is known to provide soothing properties. For this reason, applying a cool black tea bag to skin may help to soothe and relieve skin discomfort. However, black tea skin benefits within skincare formulations still need to be further researched. 1
