Are you tired of drinking either black or green tea? Well, you will be glad to know that there are lots of different tea varieties you can choose. Read below about three of the most common kinds of tea you can get delivered to your door.
Three Popular Tea Varieties
- Black Tea. When you say the word “tea” there is a pretty good chance that the person you are talking to will imagine a cup of black tea. Black tea is the most common tea in the US and is used in everything from Breakfast Blend to Southern Sweet Tea. The leaves are typically black or dark brown and have a higher caffeine content than other varieties of tea. Black teas have a robust flavor profile and can become bitter if over-brewed. To get the best results, brew with fresh water, just off the boil and let steep for between 3 – 5 minutes.
- Green Tea. Green tea is also a popular tea in the US. Its popularity comes from its reputation of being a healthier beverage option than coffee or black tea. It has significantly lower levels of caffeine than black tea and has more antioxidants. Many people describe the flavor of green tea as vegetal. To get the best results, brew with fresh water from 160 to 180 degrees and let steep for between 1 – 3 minutes.
- Herbal Tea. Many people love herbal tea because these teas are typically caffeine-free and are often made with a variety of flavors. Herbal tea is made with flower buds, stems and roots from a variety of plants and there are also herbal infusion flavors like chai black tea and jasmine green tea. Herbal teas are commonly served as flavored iced teas but are also delicious served hot. You can even add fresh fruit for a boost of flavor.
