Topic: OT (kind of) question (3 msgs / 37 lines)
1) From: Penelope
I have a question that, while is not exacting on topic, is sort of relevant 
(or at least related).  My lovely partner just brought home a Camellia 
Sinensis for me.  For those who that doesn't mean anything to, this is the 
plant that black tea is produced from.  The question:  does anyone know an 
actual procedure for turning the green leaves into a rich black tea (see, 
sort of like green beans to rich roasted coffee :-).  I generally know the 
leaves are ground, left to ferment/oxidize and then dried.  Has anyone done 
this?  Any thought aside from general experimentation?  Thanks.

There is a very good book, available at Amazon.com, called "the story of coffee
and tea" by the Schapira Brothers, which gives detailed info about the process.
