The choice between black, green, white, herbal and rooibos tea may seem daunting. You may be wondering what in the world 'rooibos' is never mind how you pronounce it.
Below gives you a bit of information on each tea to help you decide which you may want to try!
Although black, green and white tea taste completely different, they all come from the same plant - 'Camellia sinensis'. The reason they differ is due to the way they are processed. Black tea leaves are the most processed and are fully oxidised which turns the leaves black. Green tea leaves are less processed and prevented from oxidising, and white tea leaves go through the least processing of all and are only lightly oxidised. Tea from the Camellia sinensis plant has on average half the amount of caffeine as coffee, and the caffeine in tea gets released over a longer period of time so its a better alternative for prolonged concentration.
Rooibos tea comes from a South African plant, called 'Red Bush' which needle like leaves have a natural sweetness and brew a soft red cup.
Herbal tea is essentially fruit and herbal infusions
