Green TeaGreen Tea is the least processed of all tea types. As soon as the leaves are plucked from the plant they are steamed or pan fired in order to arrest the active enzymes that cause oxidation from occurring. As a result of this process the leaves maintain a soft and supple texture that ultimately get rolled into the desired shape. Once rolled, the leaves continue through another rolling, pan firing, or heating process until the tea reaches 4% or less of moisture.
