Bulk Teas.  Black Tea?   Green Tea?   Oolong Tea?  
                   Herbal Tea?  Medicinal Tea?

When the word tea is mention what comes to mind?   Black Tea?   Green Tea?   Oolong Tea?   Herbal Tea?  Medicinal Tea?   All green, black and oolong teas come from thea sinensis, an evergreen shrub.   The kind of tea produced is defined by the method in which the leaves are processed.  Green tea is the first tender leaves of spring that are picked, partially dried, rolled, steamed, crushed and dried again with hot air. Oolong tea leaves have been allowed to semi ferment for an hour.   Black teas are slightly dried, rolled on tile and fermented for 3 hours to strengthen the bouquet and flavor, yet reduce the bitterness.   Names like oolong, black or jasmine tea refer to how the tea was processed.   Names such as Assam, Darjeeling, or Ceylon refer to the country or region when the tea was grown.   Names such as pekoe, orange pekoe refer to the leaf size. 

Tea is enjoyed by people all over the world.   Whether the it is green tea, that is brewed perfectly before the taste of the tea turns bitter, or the rich aroma of the black tea that has been steeped to the precise color of  golden brown to insure that the taste is superior, and luxurious.  Herbals teas 
are renown for their medicinal properties as well as their fragrance.

Tea is versatile and the taste can be changed simply through brewing times, or better yet by adding milk, honey, or a slice of lemon peel to the tea.
