All teas are derived from the same leaves. However, they vary based on how long they’re processed. They also vary based on the oxidation process. Nowadays you can get tea with fruit or flowers added, something spicy with a little milk, or even medicinal tea.
White tea is low in caffeine and very light. It is often too weak for people who enjoy stronger tastes. But white tea is perfect when paired with fruit flavors. You just have to be careful to brew it at a lower temperature and for a shorter time.
Green tea is really close to the natural plant, which is great for health benefits. However, it can result in a strong, grassy taste that many people don’t enjoy. Pairing green tea with other flavors can help. Also, brewing for a short period at a lower temperature can help.
Most Americans are familiar with black tea since it’s used to make iced tea. It has about the same caffeine as coffee and pairs well with a little cream or milk. It is a more forgiving tea and can withstand very hot water and long brewing times.
