Varieties Tea In The World
Tea is the second most popular drink in the world after water. All tea comes from the Camellia sinensis species of plant. Camellia sinensis is broken down into two varieties: Camellia sinensis var. sinensis and Camellia sinensis var. assamica. As for types of tea, the five main groups are white, green, oolong, black, and pu’erh. And the variety and different in tea groups is the length of time leaves are oxidized (the browning of the tea leaves due to oxygen exposure) and the processing style. It can including methods such as roasting, steaming, and pan-firing. Shan Tea is also one of most popular teas.
These are very delicate, elegant and gentle teas. Popular white teas include Silver Needle and Bai Mudan. White tea can be produced in areas including Nepal and even Yunnan, a region best known for pu’erh teas.
Green teas require more steps to process than white teas, but less oxidation takes place. That is why the leaf itself remains green. Popular Japanese greens include Sencha and Matcha. Well-known Chinese green teas include Longjing and Bilouchin. The flavors of green tea covers a wide spectrum from buttery and grassy to smokey, and even savory.
Oolong is the most complex type of tea to produce. The best oolongs come from both Taiwan and China. The flavor of individual oolongs teas differ greatly. They range from sweet and misty honey to a milky creaminess and bold roasted flavors.
Black teas are perhaps the most common on the market. Darjeeling, Assam, Ceylon, and Keemun are a few of the most well-known. These teas are heavily oxidized and brew up strong and bold. Black teas is the base of many popular tea flavors such as Earl Grey.
Pu’erh is a fermented tea from the Yunnan province in China. There are two styles of this tea based on production: raw and cooked. Flavor and color are usually light while others can be dark and intensely earthy.
Camellia Sinensis var.Assamica In Vietnam
Camellia sinensis var. assamica are used for tea processing in Vietnam. Depending on environment and harvesting, trees can ultimately grow to a height anywhere between five and fifteen metres (16 to 49 feet). You can find areas of tea trees in the northern provinces of Ha Giang, Lao Cai, Yen Bai, Son La, Lai Chau, and Dien Bien.
Although families would have originally made their own tea but it is now more common for the harvesting of leaves to be a separate practice from the processing of tea. Then they sold freshly leaves to small artisan producers or to collecting agents for the larger factories.
People have expertly made shan tea. The attraction of shan tea is the bio-diverse and chemical-free origin of the leaves. The added complexity and depth of deep-rooted trees, broad leaves, and the slow growth typical in mist covered mountain conditions also make shan tea become so special.
