Green Tea

Green Tea

Green teas, of which there are thousands of varieties, are produced by a variety of complex methods but are all firstly steamed to prevent the oxidation of the leaf which would turn the tea into "black" tea. The very finest types produce gentle, subtle, refreshing liquor with alleged, although now largely undisputed health benefits, due in part to the high quantity of antioxidants, up to twenty times that of vitamin E, found in the leaves. This is why green tea is said to be very reviving. We carry all of the famous green teas from each tea growing country, they are acclaimed not just for their special quality but also for their provenance and history and should not be confused with the many thousand more common varieties. These teas should be carefully brewed in filtered water between 70-90c and the rich flavour content of the higher qualities means the same leaves can be used 2-5 times.

  9. 'April Snow' Anji Bai Cha King

    April Snow Anji Bai Cha King

    Grown in a remote mountain area near the Bamboo forest featured in the film 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon', this is currently the most sought after tea in China, where most of it is kept because it is considered to be unique. It is grown from cuttings of one of the only four surviving giant white tea trees. Whilst it is a 'White' tea it is processed as a green tea. This gives it a deeper flavour than Yin Zhen for example. The leaf looks slim and feather like with an almost white colour just prior to picking in the spring. This is expressed as the distinctive pale yellow-green in the dry leaf, not the more usual green seen in most green teas and in lower grades of Anji. It has a wonderful fragrance and pale lemon, crystal clear liquor. We buy the finest grade, which has more amino acids than other green teas and the best flavour we have experienced in any green or white tea. Learn More
