Tea was first cultivated in China – originally for medicinal purposes – and its first recorded use was over 3,000 years ago. The major types of tea are distinguished by botanical varieties of the plants and by the processing methods. Green tea leaves are picked and immediately sent to be dried or steamed to prevent oxidation. In contrast, oolong and black teas are left to ferment after they are initially picked, and are transformed via several varying stages, from raw leaves into a tea product.
