Green Tea

Green tea is a type of tea that is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. Unlike black tea, which is fully oxidized, green tea is only minimally oxidized during processing, which helps to preserve its natural flavor and color. Pure leaf green tea is a popular beverage worldwide and is known for its potential health benefits.

Chinese and Japanese pure leaf green teas are both made from the same plant, Camellia sinensis, but they are processed differently, resulting in distinct flavor profiles and characteristics.

Chinese green tea is typically pan-fired or roasted in a wok to stop oxidation and preserve the tea's natural flavor and aroma. The leaves are then shaped and dried, resulting in a range of shapes and sizes, from tightly rolled balls to long, flat leaves. Chinese green tea is known for its subtle, complex flavors and aromas, with notes of vegetal, nutty, and floral flavors depending on the specific variety.

Japanese green tea, on the other hand, is steamed to stop oxidation, resulting in a bright green color and a grassy, vegetal flavor. The leaves are then shaped and dried, often resulting in small, needle-like leaves. The most famous variety of Japanese green tea is matcha, which is ground into a fine powder and whisked with hot water to create a frothy, intense tea.

Both Chinese and Japanese green tea have potential health benefits and are enjoyed for their unique flavors and aromas. Some people prefer Chinese green tea for its complex flavor profiles, while others prefer Japanese green tea for its bright, grassy taste. The choice between the two comes down to personal preference.
