Classification分類:

The four classifications of tea according to fermentation再把這四大分類細分:
According to the degree of: fermentation, rolling, baking and tea leaf maturity根據製造時發酵,揉捻焙火與採摘時原料成熟度來分類

  non-fermented tea :不發酵茶,即綠茶:
  post–fermented後發酵茶 即普洱茶,即黑茶:
  partially fermented tea 部分發酵茶,半發酵茶,即烏龍茶
  completely fermented tea全發酵茶,即紅茶

In this table below we have the tea leaves types and the relationship to the kind of tea with the fermentation levels.

There are different ways to classify tea, such as the degree of withering or fermentation, type of fresh tea leaf like tips and/or leaves, general color of finished tea leaf, like black tea or green tea.  The following is degree of fermentation based.

Explanation of some tea making processes:
Chinese six major tea types中國六大基本茶類: green, yellow, white, oolong, black, and dark tea.
Any type of tea can be spiced.任何種類的茶都可加以調味。
Spiced Tea 調味茶
Any type of tea can be scented任何種類的茶都可以熏花。.
Scented Tea 熏花茶

oxidation氧化 (enzymatic):  a natural chemical change in the tea leaf that begins after harvesting and accelerates if leaf cells are broken and exposed to oxygen.
withering萎凋:  water loss by respiration and evaporation and leaf becomes more pliable, dryness and heat aid in this process.
fermentation發酵:  actually enzymatic oxidation, noticeable change chemical composition and leaf becomes darker, moisture and heat aid in this process.
fixation殺青:  to rapidly stop the fermentation through water loss caused by heat.
rolling揉捻:  breaking the leaf cell walls exposing sap to leaf substrate and air, and shaping.
drying乾燥:  making the leaves ready for storage.

laying 作青: includes setting and tossing, this step is during the withering/fermentation stage
setting 靜置: letting the fresh leaves rest
tossing 攪拌浪青:  also called shaking (but this is not rolling)

Two different methods of making black tea (in India, Sri Lanka for example):
There are two methods used to rupture the leaf cells prior to fermentation.
orthodox method: the traditional way of making black tea, a batch of leaves go through the  roller and are   macerated and twisted.
CTC(crush-tear-cut) 切碎-撕裂-捲曲method:  leaves are continuously fed through the machine and are rolled and goes through sharp teeth.
切碎-撕裂-捲曲 crush-tear-curl CTC
Using tea jargon fermentation/oxidation, microbe fermentation is called piling, and oxidation is called fermentation.

Key processing factors influencing the variety of tea and developing different tea character:

Green Puer: large leaf variety,  can be aged but it still is green Puer, the thing that makes a Puer is it has to be sun fixed, the aging is an added process, yes it should be aged but it does not have to be it is still a Green Puer at this point, can be compress into cakes, comes from Puer, China.  Regular green tea doesn’t have sun fixation.

Dark tea: sun fixation, piling process, small leaf variety processing similar to dark Puer, also usually aged.

Dark Puer: sun fixation, piling process, large leaf variety, comes from Puer, China.

White tea:  lightly oxidation, but white tea is not high heat fixated it is withered then rolled lightly then dried, many come from in Fuding, China.

Oolong tea:   the degree of laying作青 and fermentation affects the tea character developed, many oolongs are made with indoor withering an example cool long time withering like anshi iron goddess.

Green tea:  fixation is usually pan fixation in China and Taiwan and steam fixation in Japan.

Yellow tea: similar to green tea but has a added swealtering process no added heat the tea is piled up after fixation and rolling for short-time only made in the spring.

Black tea: (key point for all black teas is first rolled/ctc/rupture cell walls then fermentation)

Roasting is an added process/加工, literally any tea can be roasted but it will not change tea type: for example if a green tea is roasted it still is a green tea like the japanese tea (Hojicha/ほうじ茶/番茶). oolongs can be roasted but not necessary, same is for scenting and spicing. see below.

Problems of translating: Taiwan and many parts of China use 初製and 加工:
added processing 加工:  re-drying覆火, aging 陳放 (by storing), roasting 焙火, scenting熏花, spicing調味Added after the tea is one of the main varieties and can’t be changed, for example once it is a green tea it won’t change into a black tea.

Primary processing creates the major tea types, green tea, green puer, dark puer, oolong tea, white tea, dark tea, black tea:

Primary Processing初製from fresh leaves 茶青not all are used: withering萎凋, fermentation發酵, fixation殺青,rolling揉捻,drying乾燥, 渥堆 piling, this is the process that make a tea black or white or other variety.

Main tea processing steps to create different types of tea:
The only ingredient for primary processing is “fresh leaves(tea) 茶青”.    Any other ingredients are used during the added processing of scenting and spicing

fresh leaves 茶青: fixation殺青 > rolling揉捻 > drying乾燥    : green tea綠茶 
fresh leaves 茶青:  fixation殺青 > rolling揉捻 > sweltering悶黃 > drying乾燥   :yellow tea黃茶 
fresh leaves 茶青:  sun fixation曬青 > rolling揉捻 > sun drying曬乾> (usually aged)   : green Puer青普
fresh leaves 茶青:  sun fixation曬青 > rolling揉捻 > piling 渥堆  > sun drying曬乾   : dark tea黑茶and dark Puer熟普
fresh leaves 茶青:  withering (fermentation) 萎凋  > rolling揉捻 > drying乾燥     : white tea白茶 
fresh leaves 茶青:  withering萎凋 > fermentation發酵 > fixation殺青 > rolling揉捻 > drying乾燥:oolong tea烏龍茶 
fresh leaves 茶青:  withering萎凋 > rolling揉捻 > fermentation發酵 > drying乾燥  : black  tea紅茶      

*to be called Puer tea it must go through sun fixation曬青 and sun drying曬乾 .
*black tea rolling can be  twisting, orthodox or CTC
non fermentation:
     tea harvesting-  fixation -rolling-shaping- drying
            
partial fermentation:
      tea  harvesting -withering (indoors and outdoors)- fermentation- fixing - rolling-   
      drying-(optional roasting)

full fermentation:
    tea harvest- withering -rolling (twisting, orthodox, CTC)-  fermentation- drying

post fermentation:
 piled> tea harvesting- sun fixation -sun drying-  rolling - piling- compress(shaping or loose)- sun drying -(can age)
 aged>  tea harvesting- fixation - rolling - compressing –sun drying


Chart of Major Tea Processes:







This is the flow chart of the primary tea processing of what determines green tea, yellow tea, oolong tea, tea white, tea black, dark tea, green Puer, and dark Puer. This does not include any additional processes such as roasting, scenting and flavoring; since these can be done to any tea:


Added processing 加工:  re-drying覆火, aging 陳放 (by storing), roasting 焙火, scenting熏花, spicing調味Added after the tea is one of the main varieties and can’t be changed, for example once it is a green tea it won’t change into a black tea.

Zhu Yuanzhang朱元璋 (. 1328~1398) (Ming. 1328-1398)
First Ming Dynasty emperor, when he became emperor, to combat corruption in the tea trade, ordered the production stop of the compressed tribute tea貢茶 1391 AD. It was decreed that tea take a simpler and also a less currency-ready form. The coming of loose leaf tea was a vital development for the further innovation in tea arts and culture. His 17th son was "Zhu Quan朱权" that wrote the "Tea Manual茶谱".

Sen no Rikyu seven rules for the tea ceremony as follows:
1. Make a pleasing bowl of tea
2. Lay the charcoal so that the water boils efficiently
3. Provide a sense of coolness in the summer and warmth in the winter
4. Arrange the flowers as though they were in the field
5. Be ready ahead of time
6. Be prepared in case it should rain
7. Act with utmost consideration toward your guests
