What Loose Tea Should I Drink?
We stock over 1,000 Teas. Daunted? Don't worry because we can help find the brew for you! Let's start with Green Tea, a beverage allegedly discovered over 5,000 years ago. It comes from the Camellia sinensis plant, just like Black Tea, White Tea and Oolong Tea. The change in the Tea structure (and taste!) comes from the processing of the leaf.
Green Tea, however, is the least processed Tea type after White Tea. In preventing oxidation through either pan-firing or steaming the leaves, Green Tea maintains much of its freshness, grassiness and herbaceousness.
White Tea takes it one step further. Its processing (or, rather, lack of), coupled with its exceptionally short oxidation period, results in a brew that is delicate and very fresh. It also ensures that the Tea retains the vast majority of its antioxidants.
Black Tea, on the other hand, is the most processed Tea type. Producers allow time for the leaves to oxidise and ferment, which turns them darker and darker until they are either brown or black. Oxidation also alters the flavour profile of the Tea to accommodate distinct malty notes, sometimes even smokey or fruity notes depending on the Black Tea variety.
The final Tea type is Oolong Tea. Many consider this beverage the "in-between" Tea. This is because its fermentation and oxidation levels lie somewhere in the middle of Green Tea and Black Tea. Some Tea connoisseurs think its tasting notes lie somewhere in this middle-ground, too.
All Herbal and Fruit Teas, meanwhile, do not come from the Camellia sinensis plant. For this reason, they are not technically "Teas" in the conventional sense. But that doesn't mean they are any less delicious. Examples of Herbal Teas include Peppermint, Camomile, Rooibos and Hibiscus. Examples of Fruit Teas include Peach Tisane Tea, Wild Berry Fruit Tea, Elderflower and Lemon Tea and Boysenberry Fruit Tea. Unlike "real" Tea, none of these beverages contain caffeine.
