Get to know the colours of tea

All “true” tea originates from the same plant, which is called Camellia Sinensis or simply “the tea plant” for those who don’t speak Latin. Tea comes in many different colours, and they all have their unique characteristics. These are the main differences for the ones we offer.

  • Black tea loose leaf
    Black tea

    Black tea is made by crushing the leaves lightly before they are fully oxidised. That’s what brings the dark colour and the deep, powerful flavour. 

  • Green tea loose leaf

    Green tea is steamed immediately after harvest or processed in a similar way to stop the oxidation before it’s dried. That’s how the bright green colour and the light, herbal flavour is maintained.

  • White tea loose leaf
    White tea

    White tea is minimally processed and oxidised before it’s dried and packaged. That gives the tea its mild, delicate and sophisticated character.

  • Red (Rooibos) loose leaf tea
    Red tea (Rooibos)

    Red tea is actually made from another plant called Aspalathus Linearis or Rooibos, which means “Red Bush”. The fresh leaves are green but they are oxidised after harvest to get the red colour and the deep, slightly smoky flavour. Leaves that aren’t oxidised but dried after harvest are used for green rooibos. No matter what, rooibos is totally caffeine-free.

Three tea tips

Bradleys green tea lemon
Keep cooler when brewing green or white tea

A lower temperature, around 80 degrees, prevents the leaves from burning. This is the way to go when brewing green and white teas unless you want the flavour to be bitter.

Most automatic coffee machines can be programmed to use specific water temperatures for different teas. That’s a shortcut to great experiences for picky tea lovers!

Give it some space

When using loose leaf tea, don’t over stuff your kettle or infuser tong. The leaves expand as they get wet, and you need to let them to release all their flavours.
