Green Tea

Green tea is a type of tea that is made from Camellia sinensis leaves that have not undergone the same withering and oxidation process used to make oolong and black tea. Green tea originated in China, but its production has spread to many countries in Asia. Several varieties of green tea exist, which differ substantially because of the varietal of C. sinensis used, growing conditions, horticultural methods, production processing, and time of harvest. Loose leaf green tea has been the most popular form of tea in China since the Southern Song dynasty. While Chinese green tea was originally steamed to prevent oxidization, as it still is in Japan, after the early Ming dynasty it has typically been processed by being pan-fired in a dry wok. Other processes employed in China today include oven-firing, basket-firing, tumble-drying and sun-drying. Green tea is the most widely produced form of tea in China, and almost the only tea produced in Japan.

    Africa, Kenya

    Dryer Mouth green, a recent development in Kenyan tea, is pulled from production half way through the CTC (Cut Tear and Curl) process and immediately fired, halting oxidation. The resulting cup reveals the quality of Kenyan production and the lush majesty of the estates on which it is produced. A magnificent green tea. Non oxidized, unsorted, small batch crafted. An awesome tea! Full green tea notes with all the seasonal taste that has made Kenya the Tuscany of tea. Superbly fresh - like drinking tea on the estate. Very greenish tending yellow. Antioxidant very high. Caffeine level low. 

    Bring water to 180F. 1 tsp per 6 oz cup. Infuse for 3-4 minutes.

    Contains Caffeine.
