Black tea is one of the most commonly known teas. These tea leaves have been oxidized longer than other kinds of tea, giving it a darker color. Black tea contains more caffeine than other teas and generally has a stronger flavor. Black tea also retains its flavor for several years, outlasting other teas. While black tea can be derived from many different species of the tea plant, the addition of different flavorings such as bergamot or ceylon makes this type of tea perfect for all palates.
Green tea is derived from the same plant as black tea. The leaves undergo slight oxidation, giving this tea its light brew color. While green tea still contains caffeine, amount is less than in black tea. Green tea has also been studied for its potential health benefits.
White tea is also derived from the same plant as black tea, but it is harvested young and allowed to dry in sunlight before being lightly processed. Grown almost exclusively in China, the name "white" tea refers to the silvery hairs from unopened buds. White tea has been shown to have more health benefits than other teas made from the same plant.
Rooibos tea is derived from a South African plant. Also known as "red tea" or "bush tea," rooibos is considered an herbal tea. The flavor is described as naturally sweet and slightly nutty, and it is generally flavored with lemon or honey.
Herbal tea (or tisane) is made from an herbal or plant infusion and does not contain any parts of the tea bush. Because of this, the type of plant--and subsequent flavors--can vary greatly, from peppermint and berry leaf to chamomile and sassafras.
Oolong tea is a traditional Chinese tea that is withered under the sun and then oxidized. The flavor can range from sweet and fruity to thick and woody.
Yerba Maté is made from a species of holly native to subtropical South America. Its flavor is generally described as herbal and grassy, comparable to green tea.
Caffeinated black, green, or white leaves undergo Direct or Carbon Dioxide decaffeinating processes so that you can enjoy your favorite cup caffeine-free.
