  • All teas come from the Camellia sinensis  and Camellia sinensis Assam plants. The way the fresh tea leaves are processed and their length of contact with oxygen determine the resulting type of tea. Green and white teas are not oxidized; white teas are made from the youngest leaves which are quickly fired or steamed after plucking and then dried; green teas are mechanically rolled after firing or steaming prior to drying. Oolong teas are partially oxidized resulting in a light green to amber brew, and black teas are fully oxidized leading to a darker colored liquid.

  • For Stronger Tea add more loose leaf tea. Do not steep longer, it will make the tea taste bitter

  • Steeping with higher temperatures can burn tea and also cause bitterness.
