Tea is one of the most widely consumed beverages in the world. Tea is a hot beverage made by an infusion of the leaves and buds of the tea plant: Camellia sinensis. The difference between black tea and green tea, for example, includes the time of picking and the treatment of the leaves after picking.

Herbal Tea

Herbal tea is not actually tea because it does not involve the leaves of the tea plant. Examples of herbal teas are chamomile tea, licorice tea, peppermint tea and rooibos tea. It is tea made from dried plants, herbs and/or spices.

Black tea

For black tea, the tea leaves are processed with moist air, this is also called fermentation. This changes the color and flavor. Black tea is the most widely consumed tea in the world.

White tea

White tea is made from the young buds of the tea plant instead of the green leaves. After picking, the buds are dried immediately just like green tea.

Fruit tea

Since tea takes on a flavor relatively quickly, it can be mixed with herbs or spices, blossoms or the essential oil of flowers or fruits. Aroma granules are often added, which are made from the juice from fruits, mixed with very small tea particles. So fruit tea is tea that has flavors added to it.

Green tea

Green tea is made from the same tea leaves. The leaves are not fermented after picking but dried immediately, retaining their original green color and flavor.
