Green Tea

Tea originated in China and was enjoyed in it's natural form as green tea for 5,000 years before the oxidation process was used to create Oolong and Black teas. To create green tea, the leaves are plucked, slightly withered, then immediately cooked to preserve the green quality and prevent oxidization. Around 800 A.D. green tea made it's way to Japan, where a number of different plant variants were created. In Japan tea has become an art form and is central to the Japanese culture. The traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony dictates strict rules and etiquette for the brewing and of drinking tea.

Green tea requires lower water temperature and shorter steep times than black tea. Brewing instructions are provided on all on BrewBakers teas. The taste of green tea should be grassy, vegetal, nutty, or herbaceous, but never bitter.
