China is the homeland of tea, taking a leading position in the planting, producing and drinking of tea. Because of their different producing techniques, Chinese tea is divided into six major types-green tea, black tea, oolong tea, dark tea, yellow tea and white tea. Some people say that green tea, simple and light, stands for the scholastic city of south China; black tea, mild and reserved, is quite ladylike; oolong tea, warm and persistent, resembles the perseverance of gymnosophists; dark tea, with lingering aftertaste, symbolizes the wisdom of the elderly, and so on and so forth.
