Tea Catalog > Green Teas

Green Tea is not oxidized, and undergoes a process of firing or steaming immediately after plucking. This stops any enzyme action or oxidation of the leaves.  The taste or character of green tea is heavily determined by the time of plucking, shoot maturity, geographic and weather conditions and cultivation method.
