Black tea has been allowed to oxidize fully before being fired (dried), and the many chemical reactions that have occurred produce a dark, very complex tea. All of the vegetal qualities of the leaf are gone and replaced with a depth of character unparalleled in the food world.

The liquor produced ranges from dark amber to a black that would rival coffee. 

Rooibo The 300 year-old Rooibos plant is just a baby compared to the 1000-plus year old Camellia sinensis plant that yields what you know, as black and green tea.

Rooibos is an herb native to South Africa that isn’t even a true “tea” at all. Rather, it’s a plant that when harvested and dried can be brewed into a reddish-brown herbal infusion dubbed “African red tea” or “red bush tea” by the tea industry.

Green tea is a tea that has been picked, pan fired (or steamed) to stop the oxidation process after a very short period. The natural vegetal flavor of the leaf stands out and often a green tea will have a subtle sweetness that is lost when the tea is turned into a style such as an oolong or black tea. Green tea produces a greenish to yellow liquor and can range in bouquet from grassy to floral.

White tea is made from the immature buds of the tea plant that are picked and processed before they have had time to ‘ripen’ and develop many of the characteristics that are generally associated with tea. Due to their underdeveloped nature, they tend to have much less caffeine than any of the other tea varieties. They are not allowed to oxidize at all and produce a pale liquor and are the most subtle of teas. Bai Mu Dan, or White Peony, is often considered the second highest grade of white tea, after Silver Needle.

Herbal teas, while not actually made from tea, are generally included when talking about tea, but are in fact considered a tisane and not a "true" tea. Pronounced tee-zahn, this is the French term (now adopted by most western cultures) for any infused beverage made with anything other than actual tea leaves. 

Oolong tea is a traditional Chinese tea.

It’s made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, the same plant used to make green tea and black tea. The difference is in how the tea is processed.

The process of oxidation is what creates green, dark, or oolong teas.
