Many From One

It is truly amazing that one tea plant, Camellia sinensis, can produce so many different flavours, colours and aroma. Not to speak of so many types of tea. This picture shows a sample of different types of teas produced by Jun Chiyabari in all their colourful glory. Today, April 14 is Nepali new year so wish all of you Happy New Year 2068.


  1. Amazing. How does that happen? And happy new year to you too, Loch.

  2. It is mostly due to different processing techniques and methods. Then add different seasons. Till I joined tea business I thought, for example, green tea was made from some other tea plant altogether. For sure specific tea cultivars are good for specific types of tea but maybe not others. However, in my opinion a good tea master can overcome even that!
