How Many Different Teas Can You Name?

With hundreds of teas available out there, both straight (nothing but tea of a particular type), blended (various teas mixed together), and flavored (non-tea “stuff” added to the tea), it’s hard to remember them all. As an exercise of your memory, see how many different teas you can name before reading on. It’s okay. I’ll wait.

All set? How did you do? I can usually only name a few dozen. You can always go by the alphabet, starting with A as in Assam and winding up with Z as in Zhen Shan Xiao Chung (Lapsang Souchong). Or you can start by general tea type such as green as in Sencha and going through white, black, oolong, and pu-erh. To me, that seems the best way, so here goes:

Green Teas

Gyokuro Japanese Green Tea

White Teas

Black Teas

Oolong Teas

Masala Chais (Spiced Teas)

Flavored Teas

Blended Teas

I could keep going, but my teacup is empty and when that happens I get a bit cranky. Don’t worry. There’s tea in the pot and some fresh fruit in the frig. Snack time!
