Tea Facts - 200 Different Kinds of Tea Posted on 31 Mar 16:02


We at American Tea Room carry a rotating, seasonal selection of over 200 different kinds of tea, in every tea category available. You can consider us the Gold Standard of tea. But did you know that worldwide, there are an estimated 3,000 varietals of tea? Originally, tea came from the subtropical highlands of the Yunnan region of southern China and from there spread to Japan, Korea, and South East Asia. Across the western mountains lies the Assam region of India, where a sub species of the tea plant grew naturally before being discovered by the British and cultivated. From there, it spread worldwide and was extensively crossbred, resulting in the wide range of cultivars we see today!
