A delicious Green Tea from China. This tea is from the South West Province of Yunnan, China. Many Green teas use a ‘roasting’ process which can impart a slightly burnt or ashy taste. Many people’s first experience of trying Green Tea is of a roasted tea and this is often the reason many people say they don’t like Green Tea.
This Yunnan Green tea uses a ‘steaming’ process which enables the true floral fragrance to dominate.
Green tea has not undergone a fermentation, or oxidation, stage during manufacture and is dried whilst still green – hence its name. (Black tea changes from green to dark brown when it is allowed to oxidise).
