Learn About Tea

Tea is grown primarily in China, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Iran, Republic of Korea, Kenya, Sri Lanka (Ceylon) and Taiwan (Formosa).

All tea comes from the "Camellia sinensis" plant, but it is factors like where the tea is grown, the climate, soil conditions, altitude, etc, and how the tea is processed, that will determine the flavor characteristics of the tea. Based on the method of production, teas can be divided into three categories - black, oolong, and green.

Herbal teas do not come from the tea plant, but are infusions made from the flowers, roots, bark, leaves and fruit of other plants.
