Types Of Tea: My Cup Of Tea

If you’re new in the tea world, then many different varieties of tea can seem overwhelming to you. What type of tea you should try and go for?

What exactly is the difference between black tea and green tea? What about herbal tea and purple tea? So here we are to help you know your tea type. 

1) Black Tea

Black teas tend to be relatively high in caffeine, with about half as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. They brew up a dark, coppery color, and usually have a stronger, and robust flavor than other types of tea. 

2) Green Tea

Green tea is made from the camellia Sinensis plant. Green teas often brew up a light green or yellow color and tend to have a lighter body and milder taste. They contain about half as much caffeine as black tea.

3) White Tea

White tea has a light body and a mild flavor with a crisp, clean finish. White tea tends to be very low in caffeine, although some silver tip teas may be slightly higher in caffeine. 

4) Pu-erh Tea

Pu-erh tea is an aged, partially fermented tea that is similar to black tea in character. Pu-erh teas brew up an inky brown-black color and have a full body with a rich, earthy, and deeply satisfying taste. Pu-erh teas are fairly high in caffeine.

5) Purple Tea

Purple tea is a relatively new kind of tea and has only been commercially available for a few years. The tea is produced from a rare purple-leaved tea plant found growing wild in the Assam region of India. They have a light body and mellow flavor and are extremely low in caffeine and high in antioxidants.
