I am a tea drinker - its part of my Aussie heritage! So I have been drinking teas of all sorts for 50 years...and always thought that the different forms of tea (white, green and black), came from different plants! Last week I was in Hawaii for work (tough gig I know) and toured a tea growing farm and learned A LOT about tea.

So here is the basics - white (sometimes called silver needle), green and black tea all come form the same plant! It all depends on how many and what type of leaf is picked!

Here is more details : http://www.almostafarmer.com/facts-about-tea/

Is it not amazing how much you can learn from one small visit to an operating farm?

Must be time for a cuppa right now...
