Buying Tea Online is a Convenient and Economical Way to Enjoy Quality Teas

Tea is an amazingly popular drink – in fact, after water it’s the most popular drink in the world! Until fairly recently, most tea drunk in the West was the black variety, but there has been a huge surge in the popularity of other teas, such as green, white and pu-erh. Part of the increased interest in other types of tea has been driven by studies showing that regular consumption can have many health benefits.

Types of tea

Although all tea comes from varieties of the Camellia Sinensis plant, the way in which the tea is processed determines the sort of tea produced. For example, white tea undergoes virtually no processing after it is picked (and consequently is very high in antioxidants); black tea however, is fermented and highly processed, reducing its antioxidant content.

Current studies show that there are many health benefits associated with drinking tea, whichever type you choose.

Why buy tea online?

Whilst these days your local supermarket probably stocks a selection of black and green teas, they are often low quality blends which are inferior to “real” tea. For a large range of quality unblended teas, you will need to go to a specialty outlet. The chances are that you probably don’t have such a shop close to you, so buying tea online is an ideal alternative.

Unlike your local supermarket, specialty online shops are dedicated to, and highly knowledgeable about, the products they sell. You can be safe in the knowledge that you are buying quality teas which have been properly stored to prevent their flavor being impaired. Good online vendors will detail the properties and taste of each tea they sell, and also tell you how best to brew them.

The 4 main benefits of buying tea online

  • Quality: The tea sold in most shops is the low quality blended variety, “real” tea is a different drink altogether.
  • Variety: As well as many types of black and green teas, online vendors normally stock white, yellow, pu-erh and vintage teas.
  • Price: buying online can often be cheaper than in a shop.
  • Convenience: Your purchase is delivered directly to your door.
