- Tea Leaves
The taste for tea has undergone considerable change. Today, hundreds of teas of distinct origins and qualities are available and new blends of increasingly sophisticated and exotic scented teas are continually being created. Only a few decades ago, retail outlets dealt exclusively in basic traditional teas, stocking no green tea except for Gunpowder, and no white tea at all. The range of scented teas was very limited, and all were based on classic black tea; indeed, black teas with apple, mango, and wild blackberry were very popular at the beginning of the 1980s. The undisputed birthplace of tea, where it was discovered more than five thousand years ago, China offers some ten thousand different listed gardens. A Chinese proverb has it that to discover them would take more than a lifetime. In the course of the countr's history, the precious leaves have been much coveted and the object of political shenanigans. The various processes of tea-making were also a closely guarded secret for centuries. Today, the second greatest tea-producing country in the world (with a yield of seven hundred and fifty thousand tons a year), China also benefits from an impressive diversity. It is the only country to produce ail types of tea: white tea, green tea (of three sorts), semi-fermented tea, black tea, and smoked black tea, shaped, and post-fermented. China boasts seven major tea-producing regions: Yunnan, Anhui, Fujian, Zhejiang, Guangxi, Hunan, and Guangdong. Scented tea is today based on teas from all over the world, of all types, and each variety has its own evocative name. Tastes evolve, but the enthusiasm for tea is not a passing fad.
