Do you know how Chinese tea is classified?

There have been several attempts to formalise Chinese tea classification, the latest having occurred after the Second World War. This classification of Chinese tea is defined according to the amount of fermentation the tea leaves undergo. Fermentation (or oxidation) is the process of exposing the tea leaves to air which changes the leaves to give them their distinct taste/colour.

To find out more about it, please look at the Tea Classification page provided by Chinese Tea for You.
