Green Tea

Unfermented tea leaves.

Various medical studies have shown that green tea offers a multitude of health benefits, the most heralded being its rich natural source of antioxidants, which is linked to cancer prevention.

Green tea is generally considered to be the healthiest type of tea because it is unfermented. Studies show that green tea is rich in minerals like iron, sodium and potassium and in vitamins such as carotene, A, D, B1, B2, and C.


“I left for the Orient in search of peace. I had achieved wealth and I had achieved glory, but it was meaningless without context. Standing high above the world on the fog and mist-enshrouded Wuyi Mountains, the aroma from the tea gardens below tapped into my spiritual being."

DRYING

The unopened buds are left to dry on bamboo mats.


WITHERING

The leaves are softened, and the moisture content of the leaves is reduced by half, allowing the leaves to be rolled without breaking.

STEAMING

Heat is applied to the leaves to stop the fermentation process. Leaves are either heated in wok or steamed.
