Green Tea


Green tea is made from unfermented leaves, it is pale in color and slightly bitter in flavor. Green tea is primarily produced in China and Japan. Both countries prevent the oxidation process in two different ways. The Chinese fire the leaves immediately after they are plucked to prevent its oxidation, while the Japanese steam their leaves to preserve the flavor, aroma and color.

 

 

How to Make the Perfect Cup 🙂

The right infusing temperature is 175 degrees, and its steeping time depends on how strong you would like your taste. Want to get creative? You can add some mint or jasmine flower to your green tea for an explosion of flavor.
