The Enchanting LeafThe beauty of the leaf evolves to take on a different appeal when infused. The spectrum of colour in the dry leaf, assumes a different plane, with more compelling and different hues, textures and aroma in the infused leaf. This image of a Sencha Green Tea (steamed Japanese green tea), a real White Tea (Ceylon Silver Tips) and a Tippy Ceylon Flowery fannings offers a glimpse of the differences. The jade green Sencha, the pale yellow and golden Silver Tips, and the coppery Flowery Fannings are but a hint of the true variety in tea for a thousand more forms, colours, textures, aromas and tastes exist, changing with the weather, the art and expertise of the teamaker, the soils and sunshine.
