Black tea is the most intensively processed type of tea involving oxidation. The leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant are allowed to fully oxidise, before they are dried, giving black tea its astringency and depth of flavour. The duration of oxidation determines the strength and darkness of the tea.
Oolong tea is partially oxidised before getting dried, placing it halfway between the strength of black tea and the freshness of green tea. Taiwanese oolongs are darker and fruitier than their Chinese counterparts which are lighter and more vegetal.
Green tea is mature tea that has been picked and then pan fired [or steamed] to stop the oxidation process.Because of the very limited oxidation, green tea produces subtle sweetness that offers a bouquet ranging from grassy to floral.
White tea comes from the delicate buds and younger leaves of the Chinese Camellia Sinensis plant. These buds and leaves are allowed to wither in natural sunlight before they are lightly processed to prevent oxidation. This protects not only the delicate flavour of the white tea, but also retains high levels of the phytochemicals responsible for the teas health benefits.
Tisane [pronounced tee-sahn], commonly called herbal tea, is not a true tea. This is because it does not contain tea leaves, but rather a blend of various herbs, flowers or spice steeped in boiling water. Such teas have long been used for their healing and rejuvenating qualities. Theine-free. ( Caffeine-free )
