TEA 101
STEEP. SIP. SAVOR.
After water, tea is the world’s most widely consumed drink. And although it’s rich in history and tradition, tea is really very simple. Here’s a basic look at its origins, varieties and preparation.
${pdict.Product.name}
ONE BUD, TWO LEAVES.
All types of pure tea — white, green, oolong and black — come from the same plant, called Camellia sinensis. A single bud and two leaves, or a “flush,” is plucked by hand from each stem, usually twice a year.
TYPES OF TEA
Rule of thumb: The more tea leaves are processed, the stronger the flavor. The level of oxidation, or exposure to the elements, is what determines whether a tea is white, green, oolong or black.
The lightest and most delicate variety. The youngest, freshest leaves are simply plucked and dried, so there’s no time for oxidation.
TASTING NOTES
Fragrant and sweet.
CAFFEINE LEVEL
to
The leaves are heated before they’re rolled (by hand or in a machine) and dried. Very little oxidation, but the extra steps bring out more natural flavor.
TASTING NOTES
Lightly toasted or grassy.
CAFFEINE LEVEL
to
Bruising or tearing the leaves results in partial oxidation, and a cup with fuller body and richer color. Commonly served in Chinese restaurants.
TASTING NOTES
Floral aroma with a smooth finish.
CAFFEINE LEVEL
to
The leaves are rolled and given plenty of time to oxidize before being fired. Black teas are bold, complex and strong. More popular in the West.
TASTING NOTES
Rich and full-bodied.
CAFFEINE LEVEL
