What is tea, anyway?
Quick Tweet Fact!
So many people think tea is anything that is infused such as chamomile, bark, etc., [that included me a few years back!] but in reality, tea is ony the leaf that comes from the Camellia sinensis tree, which is a species of evergreen shrub or small tree. There are different types of tea, which are differenciated by the process of oxidation or region of origin such as Darjeeling tea.
All teas (true teas, from the Camellia sinensis tree) can be categorized into 4 major categories: white, green, oolong and black.
