3. Oolong Teas

Oolong teas are partially oxidized, meaning that only a portion of the leaves have been allowed to darken and turn black. Oolong teas fall somewhere in between black teas, which are fully oxidized, and green teas, which are heated soon after the leaves are harvested in order to halt oxidation completely. Oolong teas can range from delicate, orchid-like brews to rich, buttery varietals. Light and mellow but with a satisfying body and a crisp, clean finish, oolong teas are the perfect teas to welcome spring with.

4. White Teas

Among the most delicate and highly-sought-after types of tea, white teas undergo minimal processing after they are harvested from the tea plant. White teas are typically air-dried, and experience a small amount of oxidation through natural exposure to the air. Light, bright, and clean, white teas often have natural fruity and floral notes, with a finish like crisp apples and spring rain.

Our White Teas

Bashan Silver Tip White Tea, Himalayan Spring White Tea, White Peony White Tea, Mango Pear White Tea, Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea

5. Purple Teas

Purple tea is actually a whole new type of tea! Found growing in the Assam region of India, the leaves of these tea plants were purple instead of green. Now primarily grown in the fertile volcanic soil of Kenya, purple teas are rich in antioxidants and anthocyanins, and packed full of powerful health benefits like those found in other purple and blue foods. Purple teas brew up a light, reddish-purple color, and have a mild taste similar to that of oolong teas. Purple teas are also extremely low in caffeine!

Tea Time in Spring Time

While many people associate a cozy cup of tea with the depths of winter, we like to think of tea as the perfect year-round beverage. Whether you’re enjoying a light, floral, or fruity cup of tea in the springtime, a glass of refreshing iced tea in the summer, or a warming, nourishing cup in the cooler months, tea can be a tasty and healthful habit in any season. No matter what kind of tea you enjoy drinking, a good cup of tea can be an oasis of calm and relaxation in the midst of a busy day. Happy spring and happy sipping!
