Of all the beverages consumed in the world, “tea” is number two after water. All true tea is from the same plant; Camellia sinensis. The way leaves are processed differentiate the predominant types of tea which are white, green, black and oolong.

White Tea

Unrolled, full withered-dried (unprocessed)

Green Tea

Steam or pan fried (non-oxidized)

Oolong Tea

Partially oxidized

Black Tea

Fully oxidized

Pue-erh Tea

Processed, fermented and aged

Herbal infusions and fruit tisanes

Terms for botanical other than true tea

At the Natural Boutique we continue searching for the finest and freshest teas available. Quality of tea depends on the area it is grown, the conditions and the processing of the plant leaf. Several of our blends are our own custom recipe. As part of the Specialty Tea Institute, we strive to stay current on the most recent information including studies regarding health benefits and market trends.

When you enter the shop you will be greeted with an offer to try our “tea of the week”. This is a great way to test out new teas. Of course, if our tea of the week is not your cup of tea, one of our staff is happy to brew a cup of your choice so you can “try before you buy”.

We carry over 150 loose leaf teas and tisanes. Check out our tea catalog and blog to learn more about tea and preparation.
