A Small Note On What Makes A Green Tea:

Green tea is a very diverse and exciting category of tea. It results from the leaves of the tea plant (camellia sinensis) being steamed or fired soon after plucking. This process halts the active enzyme leaf oxidising which it would do if left exposed to the air and explains why green tea is described as unoxidised.


The two countries acknowledged as leaders in the production of green tea are China and Japan. The differences in the treatment of the leaf during manufacture, in China the leaf is fired while in Japan the leaf is steamed, explains why the green teas from each country produce such markedly different leaves and liquor.  


The Chinese style of processing produces a tea that is smooth and aromatic while the Japanese steaming process yields a more vegetal flavoured liquor. Both styles of tea are prized for their different characteristics.
