TEA…the word alone
has the power to
warm your heart
and lift your spirits!


So what is Tea, really? Indigenous to China, Tibet and northern India, the tea plant (Camellia sinensis) is a shrubby evergreen that grows in subtropical and tropical climates. Tea planters prune it to a height of three to five feet for the convenience of harvesting. Soil conditions, variations in weather and altitude all affect the flavor of tea, just as with wines.

Green Teas

Green teas require the least amount of processing. After the tea is picked it is quickly dried to stop oxidation. These leaves are either pan-fried, steamed, or fired in an oven to ensure their delicate flavor. In order to prevent cooking the tender green tea leaves, boiling water should never be used for steeping. Please refer to the “History & How-To” page for specific steeping instructions.

Oolong Teas

Oolong teas are partially oxidized and dried to varying degrees between green and black tea. After picking, the leaf is first withered in the sun and then brought indoors to continue the oxidation process. The next step involves pan firing to kill the enzymes and halt any fermentation. Through a four-step process the leaves are interchangeable hand rolled and heated allowing the essential oils to react, producing the distinct oolong flavor.

Black Tea

Black teas are allowed to fully wither during the drying process, which releases the teas enzymes. The leaves are then rolled and allowed to oxidize, or ferment, resulting in the tea turning from green to coppery red to deep brown and, finally, a near black leaf.
