Knowing Your Tea Color
Categorizing tea by property and manufacturing process has almost been nailed by the tea makers and the connoisseurs. However, identifying them by infusion color is still a mystery and a much debatable subject. It is an experience of sorts and takes multitude of discipline and knowledge to understand what defines these categories to fall under a certain color chart of infusion color scheme.
If I follow a basic thumb rule and define the types of teas by process of manufacturing; I can easily also put them in a sequential color chart. This general categorization should be a very good basis to follow when making your teas in order to gauge the correctness of tea brewing. Good color of infusion most certainly will lean towards a refreshing mouth feel. And it matters.
