Some of the teas we drink are not really teas at all. Just because something is steeped in boiling water doesn't mean it's actually a tea, although we call them teas. Sound confusing? Uptown Tea Shop takes the confusion out of tisanes (herbals, fruit, Rooibos and Maté), and explains why these caffeine-free, healthy and holistic brews should be in your cupboard.
All tea comes from the same plant, Camellia sinensis, but there is a reason they are different. Uptown Tea Shop explores the five types of tea: White tea, Green tea, Oolong tea, Black tea, and Pu'erh tea, and how they are produced. In the process, you'll get a mini chemistry lesson about oxidation at no extra charge.
