Camellia sinensis is the name of the plant that all teas come from. The only difference is that they vary by the geographical region it was grown, the time of year picked, and the method of process.
  • Green Tea – is derived from unfermented leaves.
  • Oolong Tea – is derived from semi-fermented leaves.
  • Black Tea – is derived from fermented leaves.
  • Pu Erh Tea – is derived from leaves that are post-fermented (aged and stored). 
Making tea:
Use one tea bag per mug, pour over hot water which is below boiling point (active ingredients may be compromised if the water is too hot), infuse for 3 to 5 minutes, remove tea bag and serve.
Tea bag may be used a second time for "topping up". Served without milk or sugar.
Green tea is traditionally served with fresh mint, lemon or honey to enhance flavour and enjoyment.


Storage:
Store in a cool, dry place away from sunlight and odours. Once opened, store tea in a sealed container to prevent tea absorbing moisture and odours
