Lesson Details

Tea is typically classified into six types: white, green, yellow, oolong, black, and puerh. But to create these varieties it all comes down to the oxidation process. In general, the less tea is oxidized the more gentle and lighter the taste, whereas more oxidized teas will yield a darker infusion. But there are exceptions to this rule.

In this lesson, you'll learn about the two categories of tea and what they mean.

Whether you have a curated tea menu or are looking at delving into the world of tea, this course is perfect for those seeking to understand why tea has become the second most consumed beverage in the world.
