Green Teas

Green teas are generally described as ‘unoxidized’ teas and no
chemical change has occured during its manufacture. Processing
differs from country to country but the basic manufacture
sometimes involves a short period of withering to allow some of
the water content in the leaf to evaporate, then basket, pan firing,
or steaming is in order to de-enzyme the leaf. The diversity
in leaf appearance is often astounding, with needles, spheres,
pellets, curls and blades all possible. China and Japan are the
traditional producers.
