Assuming you are new to tea (or even a carefully prepared veteran), there might be times when you get confounded by every one of the many sorts, styles, names, grades, and tea language, flying at you.

In the beginning of my investigation, I trusted that each sort of tea – dark tea, green, white, oolong, yellow, and pu-erh teas, each came from individual, remarkable plants. Presently I know that is not the situation. The kind of tea still up in the air by a stage in the handling strategy for every one.

All tea, regardless of the kind offers eight normal strides in handling, which are: culling or picking, arranging, cleaning, essential drying, handling that is well defined for the sort of tea being made, last terminating and drying, arranging by grade, and last, bundling. Step number five – handling intended for the kind figures out which of the six primary sorts of tea is being made.

Different components, obviously, factor into deciding the tea type, for example, leaf size, environment, height whether it’s high or low developed, how much dampness, the kind of soil, and season it is collected, all add to the outcome.

Yet, the sort of production, and the time Tea span the leaf is dried or oxidized is the fundamental component in figuring out which kind of tea is being delivered. Whether it’s a green, white, or yellow tea, which gets insignificant oxidation, a dark tea (or pu-erh) that is completely oxidized, or an oolong which has a wide scope of oxidation and is viewed as semi-oxidized, the degree of oxidation decides the sort of tea.

Presently we should investigate every one of the six primary sorts of tea:

Dark Tea – dark teas are completely oxidized and are typically separated into two classifications; entire leaf teas and broken leaf. The messed up leaf tea is evaluated utilizing a wire network screen with graduated sizes, going from biggest, thickest leaf, down to the littlest particles called fannings or residue. Broken leaf teas are for the most part utilized in tea packs and mixes.

Green Tea – this is one of the biggest and ordinarily generally befuddling of the six fundamental sorts of tea. Instead of utilizing a reviewing framework, green teas use name assignments. However, with the more than 3,000 unique styles of green tea said to be in China alone, monitoring every individual name is truly challenging. Japan additionally creates green teas, but since they produce less styles distinguishing every one of their singular styles is more straightforward.

To add to the disarray, there are no uniform rules starting with one country then onto the next for naming green teas, with every nation utilizing their own strategies for naming and ID.

White Tea – up to this point China was one of only a handful of exceptional nations delivering white tea, with their wonderful Bai Hao Yin Zhen (or Silver Needle) and Bai Mei (White Eyebrow). In any case, Sri Lanka has entered the opposition with their Ceylon Silver Tips and Bai Mu Dan (White Peony), the two of which are similarly essentially as lavish as China’s white teas. A few different nations are additionally creating white teas, however up to this point none fair and square of these two top delivering nations.

Oolong Tea – both China and Taiwan produce impeccable oolongs. Nature has furnished the two regions with amazing developing circumstances. The long, cautious assembling process gives the rest, with a wide determination of styles and flavors, from sweet and light to generous and hearty.

Yellow Tea – you likely haven’t heard much about yellow tea as it’s made exclusively in China and is difficult to come by in light of the fact that tiny is created. Likewise, in light of the fact that it’s a touch more dark, it is once in a while promoted and sold as a green tea inadvertently.
