BLACK, WHITE TEA AND GREEN TEA- WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES

When choosing a tea, the endless variety can be a little daunting. Formosa oolong? Green sencha? Perhaps genmaicha? How about pu’erh, or Darjeeling?

What gives each of these teas its unique flavor? Many people don’t realize that these varieties' wide range of distinctive styles and tastes all begin with the same humble leaf: Camellia sinensis.

PRO TIP!
Caffeine Content

Caffeine content can vary greatly in tea. Black tea is usually known for having the greatest quantity of caffeine, though this is not always true.

Teas that are shade-grown, such as the popular green variety, matcha, are almost always higher in caffeine than other varieties, regardless of color.

Plant Part: The top leaves of tea plants typically contain higher quantities of caffeine than the lower leaves. 

The Taoists say that tea is a delight to the soul, helps to strengthen the will, and is an essential ingredient in the elixir of immortality. When you go to your tea cupboard to brew a satisfying mug, which tea delights you the most?
