White tea produced in very limited quantities in China and Sri Lanka. In making white tea, fresh spring tea leaves are picked only in the beginning of the season. As a result, it is believed to have many health benefits.
Green tea is unfermented tea. The leaves are dried and then heat-treated to stop any fermentation/oxidation. Recent studies indicated that drinking green tea may help one to lose weight and has little side effects.
Black tea is fully fermented tea. The leaves are picked and spread out to dry until they are limp enough to be rolled. Next, the leaves are rolled and the chemical change that takes place in the leaf particles turns them from green to coppery red. The fermented/oxidized leaves are then fired, which turns them black.
Oolong tea is produced using the same process as black tea. However the time for enzymatic development is shorter. Oolong tea produces a liquor that is midway in flavor and color between green and black tea.
