An oxidized green tea?
Black Tea was discovered in the 1600s, a shipment of green tea from China arrived in England completely oxidized. Indeed the import of tea in the 17th century was done only by boat. Green tea was put under the waterline but with the heat and the sun, green tea fermented during the sea voyage and it became black.
