Premium White Tea
White tea is like the baby of the tea family, picked when it is very young and covered in tiny white hairs (one reason why it is named so). It is delicate because it doesn’t like changing much.

Oolong tea is not black or green but falls somewhere in between. Depending on how the tea masterworks their magic, it might taste more like black tea or green tea.

Kashmiri Kahwa Tea
Straight from Kashmir, this tea has been loved for ages for its health perks. It is made with green tea, saffron for that yellow color, cardamom, cinnamon, and sometimes other goodies like rose petals or almonds.

The same plant that makes green tea also makes black tea, although black tea is known for its bold, darker blend. They dry and ferment the leaves, giving it that strong flavor and deep color. Black tea has caffeine but also flavonoids that fight inflammation and boost your immune system. If you heat it up or cool it down, it can soothe minor cuts and bruises, making them hurt less and swell less.
