Black teas are made by rolling and bruising tea leaves, then allowing them to oxidize and turn black. Black teas are the most popular teas in North America & Europe.
Green tea is made with a process called firing, which halts oxidization and keeps the tea leaves green in appearance. Green teas are known for their numerous health benefits.
While white & green teas are lightly oxidized and black teas are heavily oxidized, everything in the middle is considered an oolong tea. Arguably one of the most complicated teas to produce, oolongs are complex and range widely in their flavor and character.
Pu'erh Tea ("pu-air" or "pu-er") is a green tea that is fermented and aged anywhere from months to years. They are prized for their earthy, woodsy or musty aroma and rich, smooth taste.
White tea is the least processed type of tea, undergoing little to no processing after being plucked. White teas are hand-picked early in the season and provide a deliciously healthy soft and sweet tea drinking experience.
Strictly speaking, herbal teas are not "tea" because they do not come from the plant Camellia sinensis. Nevertheless they are delicious caffeine-free drinks with numerous health benefits.
