Different types of tea and their usefulness
Today many varieties of drinks are being sold as tea. But except black tea, white tea, green tea, orthodox tea and Oolong tea, others cannot be treated as tea. Only the tea of Indian and Chinese origin is the actual tea. About the refreshing quality of tea, it can be said that from ancient times people of the eastern-most part of India and China have been drinking tea as they realised the medicinal qualities of tea. An ancient book named Cha Ching was written by a Chinese tea agriculturist by the name of Lui where he wrote in details that tea has many medicinal qualities. Tea refreshes one’s mind, reduces body ache, joint pain, head ache and lessens body fatigue.
Different kinds of tea are produced from the species of Cammelia sinensis and Camellia sinensis vrs Assamica.
Below are the varieties of tea produced in Assam.
- Green Tea,
- Orthodox tea
- Black tea
- Oolong tea
- White tea
- Camellia blossom tea
- Yellow tea.
The first question that comes to our mind is what is green tea? The people of Assam are used to the taste of the red liquor made from tea. For them and for the other Indian people too, organic tea is a new thing. The use of green tea is limited because of its cost and only health conscious people use this tea. Green tea is available both in organic and inorganic qualities.
