Loose Leaf Tea

All true tea comes from Camellia sinensis, an evergreen shrub that is native to southwestern China’s Yunnan province.

According to legend, tea was discovered by the great herbalist, Emperor Shen Nung, in ancient China, circa 2737 BC.

The six types of teas (black, oolong, green, pu-erh, yellow and white) are distinguished by processing methods and levels of oxidation.
