Black Tea, with its long history of use, is one of the most recognized teas in Western tradition. The tea leaves are fully oxidized (fermented), which gives black teas their deep, robust, full-bodied taste. It is an elegant and timeless beverage, simply delightful for savoring in the morning or afternoon. With the highest caffeine content of all the teas, it only contains half the caffeine of coffee. Black tea is known as the world’s number one beverage-hot, cold, flavored or scented.
Oolong tea uses a partial fermentation process. The leaves are oxidized at different levels which result in a broad range of flavors and aromas. After harvesting, the leaves are bruised and begin to change colors; the end result is a medley of black and green teas. Our oolong tea is a full-bodied tea with a smooth aftertaste.
Green Tea has been long valued for its medicinal and healthful properties, especially in Asia, and has now gained popularity in the Western culture. Our green tea is an exceptionally wholesome and flavorful beverage, which has a very high content of vitamins and minerals, including ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and several B vitamins. Five cups of green tea a day will provide 5-10% of the daily requirement of riboflavin, niacin and folic acid. Green tea leaves are unfermented, greenish in color; and have approximately 20-30% as much caffeine as a cup of coffee.
White tea leaves are picked early in the season when the buds are fresh and tender; then the leaves are gently dried. White tea undergoes the least processing – the leaves are simply withered and dried. This method maintains higher levels of antioxidants, polyphenols and vitamins, while also yielding much less caffeine than the other tea varieties. Our exceptional white teas brew to a light golden color with a light, delicate flavor that is sweet and refreshing.
