All tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis evergreen, which is kept in a juvenile state with continuous pruning. Thousands of cultivars exist but all tea varieties stem from one of two primary roots: Indian or Chinese descent. How the leaf is processed after it has been plucked determines what ends up in your cup. Any tea bush, anywhere in the world, is capable of producing a leaf that has the potential to become a white, green, oolong, black or pu erh tea. Besides being delicious, tea contains many medicinal properties used in both contemporary and traditional medicine to treat cardio-vascular problems, bone density, diabetes, tooth decay, cancer cells and weight management. Tea has been cultivated and savored throughout dozens of Asiatic cultures for nearly 5,000 years.
