GREEN TEAS

Green teas are made from typically smaller, younger leaves and buds. Undergoing a minimum of processing, they are also referred to as non-oxidized teas. The leaves are first spread out on cool cement floors or rattan racks and allowed to wilt for a few hours. The leaves are then heated to remove much of their moisture and to stop the oxidation process. After another chance to rest for a while, the leaves are are rolled to give them special shaping and then finally dried until only 3% moisture remains. Green teas have long been enjoyed for their health-giving qualities as well as their unique and often subtle flavors. Interestingly, the aroma and taste can be quite different from one another. The color of the liquor can range from a bright jade green to a pale yellow and is best when drunk without any additions.


Teas are available in bulk packaging or in "The Tea House" brand retail packages. Price is per lb.  Minimum quantity is 2 lbs. unless otherwise (*) indicated. Prices and availability are subject to change without notice. Custom blending available.
