Camellia sinensis is the botanical name for what is commonly referred to as tea. Not all teas are the same. There are a myriad of teas available ranging from: black teas, green teas, white teas, herbal teas, fruit teas, blended teas, etc. Let us not forget Rooibos Teas, Aspalathus linearis, commonly referred to as red teas which are from South Africa, also referred to as rooibos bush or “red bush” teas.

Stay tuned!
