Typically, the best green teas are made from the young leaves, which are withered (wilted in a controlled manner), fixed (where oxidation is halted), and dried. The methods of achieving these steps can vary greatly between styles, but the goal in each is to preserve the natural fresh taste of the plant. By preventing oxidation from progressing past an early stage, the polyphenols in the leaves are left intact, along with the color of the leaves and buds themselves.
Our green teas have been carefully selected from among countless varieties and evaluated for taste, fragrance, and appearance. We're happy to be able to offer some of the best green teas of China at a fair, reasonable price.
