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.
