Morning Dew loose leaf tea

 

GREEN TEA

Green tea originates from the very same plant species, the Camelia Sinensis, as black tea and all other tea types. It is made from leaves that have undergone minimal oxidation during processing. Green tea is distinctly different to black tea because it goes through a different process.

Green tea production is characterised by an initial stage of short intense heat to deactivate enzymes in the leaf and prevent oxidisation (the leaf going brown).

Green tea originates in China but it has become associated with many cultures throughout Asia. Green tea gained its popularity as the Chinese tea ceremonies increased in the 8th century. The steaming method was practiced and improved enabling the hosts to offer a far superior green tea at the ceremonies. As popularity grew over the coming centuries, green tea was not only offered at the tea ceremonies but became ingrained as part of everyday culture

Green tea is often misunderstood. The best green teas are deliciously fresh – they taste green and alive. A common misconception is that green tea has an overwhelmingly bitter taste. When asked, many people say they don’t like the flavour of this tea but this can be because they are buying inferior green teas and are probably brewing them incorrectly! Green tea can be sweet and fragrant or deep in flavour, it all depends on the origin, processing, temperature and time of the process to make it. 

Green tea is now produced and enjoyed all over the world. In fact, green tea has made somewhat of a comeback in the 20th/21st century as western countries have become more aware of its significant health benefits. Long live green tea!

FLAVOURED GREEN TEA

The Chinese have been combining green tea with other tastes and aromas for thousands of years and we offer a variety of the most beautiful blends. We have high quality loose leaf teas enhanced with exotic flowers, fruit pieces and herbs. The art of tea flavouring requires a great deal of skill. The most exquisite flavoured green teas are those that achieve the perfect balance of ingredients; enough flavour to complement the tea, without overpowering its own characteristic taste. Japanese Sencha, with its large, whole leaves is particularly suited to flavouring and this is the basis of the most popular flavoured green tea we sell; Morning Dew.
