Since all teas originate from the same species, the difference in processing is what truly distinguishes one type of tea from another. Another common way to distinguish types of tea is by the level of oxidation they have been processed with. Black teas are almost always fully oxidized, which is a process that causes atoms to lose electrons.

It is the embodiment of the finest English tea.
