Vintage Tea Poster

I was searching around on eBay earlier and came across a really neat find. Vintage Tea Posters! Most are reproductions of old tea advertisements using the Giclee printing technique. That makes for a bright and vivid poster that will look perfect hanging in your home or tea shop.

There are also a number of original vintage tea posters to be found too. I love all the different styles that can be found. And as always the stock on eBay is constantly changing, so check back later to see what is available.

What is the Difference Between Green Tea, Black Tea and White Tea?

There are a number of different teas: white, green, black, rooibos and herbal. It can seem very overwhelming at times to keep them all straight and what their differences are. Today I'd like to talk about the difference between green tea, black tea and white tea. One of the most surprising things of all is that they come from the same tea bush, Camellia sinensis. Especially when you look at them:

Black Tea Leaves

It is all in the picking and processing of the leaves that make the difference. White tea is harvested from the very top of the tea bush early in the year. They only pick the top leaf and a bud. These tea leaves are then dried in the sun and that is it.

Green tea are tea leaves from the whole bush and they also undergo a step of being steamed or pan fired. Before being dried it is often rolled into different shapes depending on the type of green tea. For instance Jasmine tea is sometimes rolled into a pearl shape.

Black tea undergoes the most processing. Tea leaves from all over the bush are picked and then left in the sun to wilt. The tea leaves are then rolled allowing the tea leaves to ferment as they react with the air. The fermenting process turns the tea leaves black. They are then dried.

So that is the basics. Look for another post coming soon discussing the various types of teas within each class and why they taste so different. Hope you enjoyed reading about the differences between green tea, black tea, and white tea. Check out our Tea Shop and order some to try today.
