Black Tea (botanical name: Camellia Sinensis)
Leaf tea starts with the same plant and the different processing techniques contribute to the end resulting tea type – white, green, oolong, or black. Black tea is created through the various processing technique and skills of the tea farmer. There are hundreds of different types of black tea depending on the cultivar or variety, terroir, and style of processing. Around 90% of Australian Black tea has been growing in northern Australia since the late 1880’s with plants from Sri Lanka.
Yuzu or Yuja in Korea (botanical name: Citrus Junos) is a citrus fruit that is said to have originated in Central China. It is an odd lemon-like fruit with a lot of seeds and is prickly to pick, has a difficult flavour to describe. At best it is tart like a grapefruit with mandarin overtones. Yuzu is widely used in Japan and Korea as a sauce, marmalade, preserve, or vinegar. It is not usually eaten as a fruit. Yuzu farms can be found in Australia, however, the fruit is usually presold to restaurants and rarely available for sale.
