We love tea; that’s obvious. For thousands of years, the tea plant has been near-worshipped worldwide for the refreshing, enjoyable beverage it produces and the wellbeing benefits it offers.
At Tea Garden, we celebrate the humble cuppa in all its varieties, from that morning mug of white-one-sugar to the herbal health-boosting blend you sip to supercharge your body and mind. Matcha, sahlep, green chai – we champion them all. And FYI, our masala tea is to die for.
Want to recreate our unique premium tea house experience in your own home? Our online store stocks the biggest choice of loose teas, tea pot sets (cute gift alert!) and essential hookah accessories for those shisha-and-chill nights in.
Four main types of Tea
White tea is the most delicate and probably the most powerful of all the types of tea.
It brews a very airy aroma and somewhat fruity taste that any hot beverage drinker can enjoy. This tea also offers more powerful antioxidant properties than its older brothers. I say “older” because this tea is in fact young, that is, the leaves are picked before they fully open and are covered with tiny fuzzy whitish hairs which earns it its name “white tea”.
Oolong tea which is also called wu long tea, is one of those types of tea that is in between green and black. A sweet, floral, woody brew that consists of larger leaves. This tea has also proven in studies that it can help folks shed pounds, and even decrease the progress of wrinkles and aging of the skin.
Black tea which is the most commonly consumed tea in the world is the most processed of the four types. Tea overall is the second most consumed beverage in the world, with water as the first. Most black varieties of tea come from India! Most people may think China since that country is the birth place of tea, but India’s hot climate and high mountains produce some of the worlds finest black teas.
