What is white tea?
White tea is created when the bud and first leaves of the tea bush are carefully plucked and gently air dried. This gentle process allows the brewed tea to remain soft and silky in your mouth instead of developing the vegetative characteristics found in green teas.
What are the right conditions for quality tea?...
What are the right conditions for quality tea?
Climate, altitude and soil make a difference in the quality of a tea. Many of the best teas come from high elevations, where irregular weather and cooler climates put more stress on the tea plant, leading to slower growth and a smaller yield. This stress allows the plant to develop more concentrated levels of the substances that produce great aroma and flavor.
Where does Tazo source its tea?....
Tea is native to the mountainous highlands where India, Tibet, China and Myanmar share a border, but many countries now grow tea commercially. Tazo sources its tea from only a handful of these countries, including black teas from India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Kenya, and green teas from China and Japan.
What does a tea plant look like?...
The tea plant
The white-blossomed tea bush, Camellia sinensis, can reach heights of 40 to 60 feet, but the plants are typically pruned to a height of about three feet, creating a flat-topped bush known as a “plucking table” that allows for easy harvest of fresh, young tea leaves. With proper care, tea bushes can be healthy and productive for more than 100 years.
