General Info: Leaves for green, white and black Teas are grown and harvested in 14 provinces of Central and Southern China. The Tea Estates are located in the mountain regions. Climate and elevation produce a wide variety of blends and flavors of the Thea sinensis that are lower in tannic acid than the Thea assamica species that is cultivated in India, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. The best known names are China Keemun, Szechwan, Yunnan, Fujian, Jasmine and Rose Tea. The best tea crop quality derives from leaves that are picked during the spring harvest and mostly air-dried.
