Tea Varieties - A Wild Blend

The qualities of tea from different regions and gardens vary greatly. In the tea field, it is a complex field. There are tea varieties you can try below.

Black Tea

When black tea is brewed the tea leaves extract the color from the buds, stems, and leaves of the tea plant, which creates a dark brownish color to the tea. While the highest quality black tea is actually pretty dark, the darkest tea has become a standard and considered affordable in most homes. In Chinese history, the Emperor’s favored a dark tea because the Emperor would drink it to stay awake during long nights of negotiation and also to stay alert for possible trouble. The dark tea comes from high mountain valleys in China and Vietnam.

White Tea

This tea originated in Southeast Asia and is harvested naturally. The leaves are usually very long, single-stemmed, and have distinctive strings of long leaves between them. It has a tendency to be very delicate and lovely with a taste quite close to green tea but has more of a darker color.

Green Tea

The leaves of this tea, when first picked, are soft and fine. As they ripen, they turn a light green color. These leaves were traditionally picked before they reached the middle of the stalk and fermented, as the leaves absorbed some of the additional natural acids produced by fermentation.
