Tea comes from one plant: the Camellia sinensis. How it is processed determines the type of tea it will become. There are four major types of teas – green, oolong, black, and black flavored teas. In general, each tea producer uses a single style of processing which is determined by geography, elevation, moisture level, and local practices. Tea grows where it is hot and moist – 80 to 150 inches of rain annually with high humidity and fog in clay or sandy soil. Climatic produces a more intense flavor tea, like Darjeeling. Countries are known for their specialties, Japan for green teas, Formosa for oolongs, and Ceylon and India produce primarily black teas.
