javamail API question: How to send content type in message body when using multiparts

I am using JavaMail API in order to send message with attachment and it's working OK.
When using mail API without Multiparts you can use the msg.setContent() method to specify that the message bodt is of type "text/html" but that doesn't work when using Multiparts.
My question is: When using Multiparts, where can I specify that my body is of type "text/html". Here's my code:

Message msg = new MimeMessage(session);
msg.setFrom(new InternetAddress(MAIL));
msg.setRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, email);
msg.setSubject("My Subject");
Multipart multipart = new MimeMultipart();
BodyPart messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();

Now, I would like to transfer the "Hello" text that I see in the body as html in order to be able to set html tags in it.
