green and white tea all originate from the Camellia sinensis plant. Their differences come from the methods by which they are processed. The buds and young leaves are steamed and dried to produce white tea. Green tea is made from mature leaves that go through the same process as white tea. When the leaves are rolled or broken and allowed to oxidise or ferment, the result is black tea. Broadly, tea is classified as orthodox or CTC (crush-tear-curl). Orthodox teas are whole-leaf teas manufactured using the traditional process of making tea, which involves plucking, withering, rolling, oxidation/fermentation and drying. CTC teas produce a granular leaf particle. It produces a very strong flavour, quickly infusing tea that is often boiled or used in tea bags.
