All tea comes from the leaves and buds of the plant Camellia sinensis. The individual character of each tea is a result of the region it was grown in, the part of the plant used, and the processing methods utilized. Green tea is heated early to preclude oxidation. The leaves are pan-fried or steamed to retain their color and nutrients. Green teas are derived from young buds and leaves plucked in early spring through summer and it tastes mild and delicate. Traditional Japanese Green Tea is steamed and dried without any oxidation. It produces a light-green infusion with a mild taste.
A Little Information on Green Teas - And Tips For Brewing
Green teas are known for grassy or vegetal flavors. They contain several B Vitamins, Vitamin C, and amino acids, and have one of the highest concentrations of catechins (a flavonoid with powerful antioxidant activity) among teas, second only to white teas.
We recommend using glass-based or porcelain tea ware. Rinse teacup and teapot with hot water. Cold, clear, pure water is recommended and tap water, especially hard water, is to be avoided. Fresh spring water is ideal. Filtered water is also desirable. Hard water or strong tasting water will obliterate even the most delicious tea. Use about 1-2 teaspoons of tea for every cup of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 158°F (70°c) to 176°F (80°c) for one minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing. This tea will generally yield 3-4 infusions per batch of leaves and will often yield its best flavor in the second and third infusion.
If you find that your tea tastes bitter and requires milk, sugar or lemon to counteract the bitterness, we recommend adjusting with shorter steeping times, lower temperature water, or fewer tea leaves.
Herbal remedies have been used for thousands of years in all cultures. In this day and age, Western bulk herbs and spices should be regarded as an added element to present-day healthcare and not as a replacement. Botanical herbs (teas) emphasize harmony, support, and balance.
