Green tea processing
Green tea is ‘unoxidized’ tea. The leaves are heated soon after picking in order to destroy the enzymes that cause oxidation. This type of processing preserves a high level of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals accounting for the various health benefits of green tea. The infusion is pale greenish-yellow in color and tastes light and grassy. It is best consumed without any additives, although some people may prefer to add lemon or a sweetener but not milk.

Thousands of tea estates around the world produce tea. Each estate masterfully crafts a unique tea all originating from the Camellia sinensis plant. It is the process for picking and drying that determines the type of tea; green, yellow, white, oolong, black, and pu-erh.

Green tea blends
Chinese green tea is ideally suitable as a base for flavoured green teas. Why? Due to its famously mild, fine, typical green tea character, the flavours are perfectly adapted and create a very balanced symbiosis with the base. Even after the addition of rich flavours, the green tea taste is still very balanced.
In our blends, we use China Gunpowder and lighter teas, such as Oolong, Pi Lo Chun, Chun Mee or Pai Mu Tan, for unusual or special demands.
