Does cutting and rolling affect the color and smell profile?
There are some black teas from Africa that you could swear have cinnamon in them, and some oolong teas you would bet have jasmine in them - yet they are purely one leaf with nothing added.

One Plant, One Leaf
Did you know that all tea comes from one plant called Camellia Sinensis? There are only 6 types of teas that are created through variations of farming, harvesting, processing, and manufacturing. Those 6 teas are called: White Tea, Green Tea, Yellow Tea, Oolong Tea, Black Tea, and Pu-erh. These 6 teas are then created into hundreds and hundreds of varieties of teas.
Did you also know that if tea does not include leaves from the Camellia Sinensis tea, then it is not, in fact, a tea but an herbal infusion?
Did you also know that teas that have more than just Camellia Sinensis leaves (added flowers, flavors, herbs, spices, etc), are tea blends and not true teas in their purest form? Think of tea blends with added flavors more like a sangria, rather than a glass of Pinot Noir.
