Styles, Varieties, and Types of Tea

Wikipedia: Category:Tea_varieties

A style of tea is a type of tea. Some styles of tea come from specific regions, like Assam or Ceylon, whereas other styles are defined on how the tea tastes, like English Breakfast, which can be a blend of teas from different regions. Some styles, like Tie Guan Yin, are defined by a particular varietal of tea plant, and a particular production method. We have a page on each style of tea, and we classify teas both by style and by region.

We also classify flavored teas into different styles. Styles of herbal teas can include individual types of herbs, or specific types of blends with a well-defined character, like a fruit herbal tea.
