Types of tea at a glance

Black tea

This aromatic tea is mainly grown in India, Sri Lanka and South Africa. Its production requires several post-harvest processes, including fermentation, which gives it its unique character. Different varieties, such as Assam, Darjeeling and Ceylon, each have their own unique flavor profile. Darjeeling, also known as "flying tea", is one of the finest teas in the world and is grown on the slopes of the Himalayas.

Green Tea Green

Tea is not fermented and thus retains the original form and properties of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis. It is rich in minerals and vitamins and contains the bitter substance theine, which has an invigorating effect. China is the oldest tea producing country and the main producer of green tea, with many different varieties such as Chun Mee, Gunpowder and Mao Feng being offered.

White Tea White

Tea, which owes its name to the light color of the brewed tea, is rich in antioxidants. A special variety, Pai Mu Tan, is made from large, silvery hairy leaves that are hand-picked and air-dried several times a year.

Matcha tea

Rooibos Tea

Rooibos is grown in the Western Cape province of South Africa and is known for its sweet, fruity flavor. It contains many vitamins and is caffeine-free.

Yerba mate tea

Mate tea is made from the dried leaves of the mate bush and is becoming increasingly popular for its stimulating effect and numerous health-promoting properties.

Masala chai tea

Masala Chai is a traditional Indian spice mix that is very popular in Europe. It consists of cinnamon, anise, cardamom, ginger, pepper and cloves and is often served with black tea, honey, sugar and milk.

vegetable tea

Our vegetable teas are a mixture of vegetables, spices and tea. They are vegan, calorie-free and organic.

yellow tea

Yellow tea, although less well known than its green and black counterparts, is a valuable addition to the tea world. It comes primarily from China and is made through a special process that sets it apart from other teas. After withering and steaming, the tea leaves are carefully rearranged and covered to allow for gentle fermentation. Known as the "yellow step," this step gives the tea its eponymous yellow hue and rich, sweet aroma.

Oolong tea

Oolong tea is a traditional Chinese tea that sits somewhere between green and black tea as it is only partially fermented. The process of oxidation, which gives green tea its color and aroma, is stopped halfway through the production of oolong tea. The result is a tea that combines the fresh, floral notes of green tea with the depth and full body of black tea.

Chameleon Tea

Chameleon tea, also known as butterfly pea or blue pea, is a plant native to Southeast Asia. The infusion of the blue flowers results in a fascinating blue tea. What is truly unique about this tea, however, is its ability to change color. Adding some lemon juice or other acidic ingredients changes the color of the tea from blue to purple, hence the name "chameleon tea".

Kombucha Tea

Kombucha is a fermented beverage made from sweetened tea and a special culture of bacteria and yeast called "SCOBY" (Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast). The result is a bubbly, slightly tart beverage that's packed with probiotics and often sipped for its health benefits. Kombucha can be made from different types of tea, but black or green tea is the most commonly used.

Pu-erh tea

Pu-erh is a unique type of fermented tea made in China's Yunnan province. There are two main types of pu-erh tea: sheng pu-erh (raw pu-erh), which is naturally aged over years, and shou pu-erh (cooked pu-erh), which undergoes an accelerated fermentation process. Pu-erh teas have a deep, earthy flavor and are often sold pressed in round "cakes" or "bricks." Known for getting better and better over the years, they are often a collector's item for tea lovers.
