Collection: Wellcat's Favorite Teas

Teas ~ price per ounce

Tea—whether black, green or oolong—is derived from the same plant, Canadensis sinensis. Green teas, as many studies have shown, contain vital anti-oxidant qualities; some research now suggests that black tea, too, has vital anti-oxidant properties. Flavored teas, derived from the black or green state of fermentation, are—as their names suggest—deliciously flavored brews, whether served hot or iced.

Orange Pekoe (OP) refers to the size of the leaf, not the quality or flavor. While Orange Pekoe teas are whole leaf teas, Broken Orange Pekoe (BOP) teas are broken leaf teas. Contrary to popular belief, the term "orange" does not refer to a flavor, but rather to the Dutch House of Orange.
