When talking about the many types of tea, Green tea is the most common and the most recognized tea beverage and it is the easiest to find. The primary countries that export Green Tea are Japan - lighter green teas and China - darker more robust green teas where for both countries Green Tea is a celebrated beverage! We carry a full line of teas from both countries. We have lots of selection and the customer can choose the strength level they prefer in their tea. Much of the differences in the strength of Green Tea does come from processing of the lea leaves.
The teas from Japan are usually milder in flavor and produce a faint tan cup of tea and are machine processed. If you are new to the tea world - Japanese green teas are lighter on the palate and are a great place to start. The teas from China tend to be stronger and more astringent that those from Japan and are hand processed. We pair many of our stronger flavors with the Chinese green teas. The Peach and Mint combos we have are done with a strong Gunpowder Green tea allowing the flavors to balance when making a cup of tea. We don’t want the flavor of the tea to supersede the wonderful taste of the high quality green tea it is paired with.
Many of the tea leaves will go through a steaming or pan firing process. This process will stop oxidation and keep them in the Green Tea Family. Then the leaves are dried in large rollers or fan belts bringing you the final distinctive product depending the tea you choose. The tea leaves will have a beautiful green color and will have some texture and suppleness to the leaves. We carry Sencha, Dragonwell, Gunpowder and Kukicha as a few options.
