What is Tea?

tea leafThe Tea Plant

All teas come from the same warm weather evergreen plant, camellia sinensis. Teas are then classified in four major categories – White, Green, Oolong or Black. The colour of tea is the result of the chemical changes that take place when the leaves are given time to oxidize before drying.

Usually the beverage of tea is made by steeping processed leaves, buds or twigs of the tea leaves in hot water for a few minutes.
