Styles, Varieties, and Types of Tea

Wikipedia: Category:Tea_varieties

A style of tea is a type of tea. Read why we use this terminology. Some styles come from specific regions, like Assam or Ceylon, whereas others are defined by flavor or character, like English Breakfast, usually a blend of teas from different regions. Still others, like Tie Guan Yin, are defined by both a varietal of tea plant, and 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 and herbal 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.
