TEA FUN FACTS

As with coffee, water quality is a key ingredient when brewing tea. Any contaminants in the water will taint the flavor of the tea and interfere with the natural flavor characteristics of each tea. With each purchase of our loose teas There are recommended maximum brewing times and temperatures. As each person’s tastes are individual, different brewing times will suit each person. Brewing longer than our suggested times could result in a “bitter” taste.
All true teas come from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. The “true” teas are the black, oolong, green and white. The differences between types of tea result from different methods of processing the leaves. The other types of “tea” (the non-teas) include Red or Rooibos and any of our herbal blends.
Black- Grown in China, India and Sri Lanka. Broad range of flavors but more hearty than an oolong or green.
Oolong- Grown in China and Taiwan. Considered to be among the finest. Pale yellow in color, with floral, fruit and smokey tones.
Green- Grown in China and Japan. Makes up almost 10% of the world’s tea. Greenish-yellow in color with a grassy quality.
White- Grown in China and India. These are the rarest of all the teas. Nearly colorless in liquid form and delicate in flavor with sweet, creamy and nutty qualities.
Rooibos- Or red teas, are grown exclusively in South Africa. Rooibos’ are also very delicate in flavor and caffine free. Once steeped they produce beautiful hues of red.
Herbal From mainly China but also Thailand and Egypt. Herbal “teas” are for those who would prefer no caffeine compliments of nature.
