Tea Facts

All teas (aside from the herbal infusions) come from one plant with the biological name Camellia Sinensis.

It’s an ever green shrub native to East Asia and Indian subcontinent, grown today across the world. The two main varieties of Camellia Sinensis cultivated to produce tea are Camellia Sinensis var. Sinensis, that is the Chinese variety, and Camellia Sinensis var. Assamica, the Indian variety.

Depending on the oxidation level and processing method these 2 varieties of Camellia Sinensis produce 6 classes of tea: white tea, green tea, yellow tea, oolong tea, black tea and pu erh tea.
