The Cultured Cup believes that every cup of tea should be a wonderful adventure. And that there are all kinds of adventures, from curling up with a cup in a comfy chair to fueling the last day of your marathon mountain climb. What are the perfect teas for your adventures?
The taste of your tea is important. But we recommend you start with the reason you're having that cup. And we all have many reasons for many occasions:
- For health
- To relax
- To become more focused
- To become more energized
- For socializing
- For pairing with foods.
We've put together a range of Tea Collections that are specifically designed for each of these needs. In addition, we offer over 150 carefully curated individual teas, that are organized by the traditional method of tea type.
There are five types of true tea (from the camellia sinensis plant). They are White, Green, Oolong, Black and Dark. White and green teas are non-oxidized, a traditional process which deepens the flavor of the leaf. Oolong is partially oxidized; Black is fully oxidized and Dark Tea is also fermented.
Each category of these teas has a wide spectrum of flavors, one for every taste. And all contain approximately half the caffeine in a cup of coffee. Finally, we also carry Herbal, Fruit and Spice Infusions, which are from plants other than camellia sinensis; all of these are caffeine free.
So - where to begin? Pick any tea section that captures your fancy. There, you'll find lots more information both about the category and the individual teas we offer within it. Think about which one will best match the adventure you're about to take - then enjoy!
