Tea Tutorial

All tea comes from one bush, the camellia sinensis. This bush contain caffeine, but also contains large amounts of catechin, a powerful anti-oxidant.

White Tea is harvested at the first growth stage when the unopened leaf bud is covered with white fuzzy down. The processing is minimal, leaving large amounts of catechin in the tea

Green Tea is picked when the leaf buds open into small leaves. They are slightly processed therefore slightly reducing the anti-oxidant level.

Oolong Tea is the fermentation or oxidation of green tea. This darkens the leaf and changes the color and flavor.

Black Tea is produced when the green tea is fermented for long periods of time.
The leaves become shriveled, dark and strong.

NOTE: the more the tea is processed, the greater LOSS of anti-oxidants.
