So you’ve decided to get serious about your tea. You’ve ditched cheap, bland teabags for some premium, full-flavored loose leaves and you’re ready to start brewing. (If not, here’s why it’s worth going loose.) But what to brew with?
Tea is derived from a particular plant (Camellia sinensis) and includes only four varieties: green, black, white, and oolong. Anything else (like herbal “tea”) is an infusion of a different plant. But what real tea lacks in variety, it makes up for with some serious health benefits.
