Green tea is made from the Camellia Sinensis plant. The tea leaf varies in shape, texture and flavour based on the region it originates from. The richness of the soil, the micro climatic conditions, the type of plant variety as well as the tea making and processing technique, all adds to the unique appearance and flavour of the individual green tea.
Green tea is the most popular beverage in the Far East. China and Japan are the most prominent green tea produces in the world and have an ancient history of green tea consumption. Green tea is gaining popularity in the West, not just for its subtle yet complex flavours, but also for its many health benefits and high levels of antioxidants.
Green tea goes through very little processing and only mild oxidisation. Therefore, all the natural goodness and flavour complexity is preserved. Green teas are also comparatively low in caffeine.
We often visit the green tea farms in Japan and China to source the teas directly from the farmers. Our green teas are picked during the spring harvest which usually spans from March to April in China and mid-May to mid-July in Japan. Spring buds are the most succulent and flavoursome of all the seasonal teas.
