China Black Teas
Black tea is prepared by evaporating the moisture from the leaves. The leaves are then rolled, sieved, fermented (or oxidized) and dried (or fired). It is this firing that turns the leaves black.
Decaffeinated teas are ideal for those who want a relaxing drink without the kick of caffeine. The addition of flavorings to decaffeinated teas provide those who want to limit their caffeine intake with interesting alternatives.
Teas grown in India and Sri Lanka can be identified by the estate or farm on which they are grown. Most estates are owned by individuals or private companies. Many are justly famous for the high quality teas they produce.
Oolong tea is prepared in a manner similar to that of black tea however, it is only partially oxidized. The partial oxidation and the particular variety of leaf used give oolong tea its special flavor.
Green tea is steamed immediately after picking. This softens the leaves for rolling and keeps the juices from oxidizing. The leaves are then rolled and dried. Since they did not go through the oxidation stage these leaves remain green after firing.
