what is tea?
Did you know that green tea comes from the
same plant as black tea? In fact, one of the
most amazing things about tea is that whether it’s black, green, white or oolong, it ALL comes from the same plant; camellia sinensis (or the tea bush to you and me). The type of tea you end up simply depends on the processes the leaf goes through once it’s picked. Rooibos and herbals aren’t technically ‘teas’ at all, because they don’t come from the tea bush – but more on that later!
