Green loose leaf tea is harvested, or plucked, and is then quickly heated, by pan firing or steaming, and dried to prevent too much oxidation from occurring. Too much oxidation would turn the leaves brown and alter their fresh-picked flavor.
Pan fired green tea has a flavor profile ranging from grassy to toasty notes. Steamed green tea tends to be more vegetal and sweet with notes of seaweed. When steeped correctly, cooler temperature than black tea and a quicker steeping time, green loose leaf teas will be light in color with little to no bitterness.
Our green loose leaf teas are carefully selected and hand-crafted by tea masters. We micro-blend and package small batches assuring you get the best loose leaf tea from each harvest.
At The Spice & Tea Shoppe we never compromise on quality and strive to offer you only the best loose leaf tea because we feel you deserve it.
