Green Tea


Despite Green tea having been discovered more than 3,000 years ago, it was not being processed precisely until steaming-fixation (the first process when making green tea) being invented in the 8th century. Nowadays, almost all green tea is made by baking-fixation which started from the 12th century. Green tea is made from the leaves of Camellia Sinensis, and contains more nutrients and chlorophyll compared with other teas due to the absence of fermentation during processing.


After picking, the fresh leaves are spread out on bamboo trays and exposed to sunlight. There are three processes to make them into tea: fixation, rolling or shaping and drying up. Fixation is the most important process of making green tea. It means using the high temperature to evaporate water from the fresh leaves. High temperature also makes the enzyme inactive, therefore removing the fresh smell and releasing the fragrance. Finally, the leaves are rolled into various shapes and then dried.
