5 Types of Tea Sample Pack
- There are 5 main types of tea: White, Green, Blue-green (Oolong), Black (Red) and Pu-erh.
All of these teas can be produced from the same plant. What accounts for the differences is the duration of time, during which leaves are being oxidized; and the processing style, which can include such methods as roasting, steaming, pan-firing and aging.
Try one of each of these carefully selected, excellent teas to determine which type of tea suits your taste best.
