Though both green and black teas come from the same plant, Camellia Sinensis, the difference between them lies in how the leaves are treated after they are picked.
Green tea has a more straightforward drying process, whereas black tea leaves are oxidized as well as dried out. This gives a stronger taste, with a higher caffeine level, and also means the tea can be stored for years without losing flavor. By far the most popular way to drink it in the West is black tea, and your daily cup is made from this kind.
Teas are usually named after the province or area where they are grown. The soil, climate, and landscape all affect the flavor, which means different regions produce teas with distinct characteristics.
Famed as the birthplace of tea, China has been cultivating and drinking tea for around five thousand years. A large proportion of the world’s tea still comes from China, although you can now buy varieties from South America, Turkey, and Nepal as well as India and Africa. Here are just a few of the better-known black teas:
Lapsang Souchong is probably the most famous china tea; Lapsang has an aromatic, smoky taste from the pinewood fires used to dry the leaves. Yunnan is another famous tea, from the southwest of China.
It has a rich, malty flavor and blends well with milk. Keemun tea produces a rich brown color with a delicate nutty flavor and is made with great skill and discipline, the leaves dried without breakage to preserve the flavor.
The most famous Indian tea is Assam, a full-bodied and robust tea with a, particularly malty taste. It is often drunk in the morning as a wake-up brew! Darjeeling, from the foothills of the Himalayas, is often considered the champagne of teas and with a light and delicate flavor.
Sri Lanka gives us Ceylon tea, known for a clean and bright, full-bodied taste. Because of the unique climate in Sri Lanka, tea can be grown year-round.
Around a third of the world’s tea now comes from Africa, from countries like Kenya, Malawi, and Zimbabwe. Kenyan teas are highly bright and colorful, with a pleasant flavor.
Although tea has only been grown in Africa since around 1900, the climate and advances in scientific know-how mean that African teas are used in many of the more common blends available today.
