What is Green Tea?
Green Tea comes from the same plant as White Tea, Black Tea and Ooloong. Green tea is grown in many different countries, in many different conditions - this leads to a number of different flavours. The process for creating Green Tea involves first wilting the leaves of the plant, and then lightly heating them to avoid further oxidation. Heating methods vary, from steaming to firing. All methods produce a different chemical reaction, leading to a different tasting tea.
