Green tea is the most widely consumed tea in East Asia. Is it made by subjecting the dried tea leaves to a “kill green” process to arrest oxidation, thus preserving the leaves’ natural color. This is accomplished by baking, roasting, or steaming the leaves. A truly vast and diverse category, green tea is renowned for its delicate and complex grassy, vegetal, and floral flavors, and numerous health benefits.
Like green tea, white tea is unoxidized, but does not undergo the kill green, thus the flavors tend less grassy and more clear and floral.
