Types of Tea


Black

It is the most common type of tea in the Western World. Popular blends include Ceylon and Darjeeling.


White

White Tea is a selection of the youngest buds and is the least processed of all teas. Mellow, delicate, subtle.


Green

This is an unfermented tea where the oxidation process has been stopped by the application of heat. It is pale in colour and has a light, astringent taste. ‘Gunpowder Tea’ is a strong, earthy Green Tea from China.


Oolong

This sits somewhere between the Green and Black Teas in that it is partly fermented. It has a distinctively coppery red colour and a delicate flavour which is often sweet  and fruity.
