Green & White Tea

Scroll down to see more

Green tea can be grown in the sun or under shade. Once picked, the leaves are immediately steamed or pan-fired to prevent any oxidation and are then rolled into shapes such as the long, needle-like leaves found in sencha teas or the tight balls of gunpowder teas. The caffeine content of a cup of green tea is roughly equivalent to one-third of that found in a cup of coffee.  

White tea is made from selected young leaves and buds. It can only be picked for a short time each year, making it rare and precious. Like green tea, it is  minimally processed to avoid any oxidation taking place. The leaves and buds are steamed and then slowly dried. This is the least processed of any tea type and contains the highest levels of antioxidants. It also contains the least amount of caffeine, being only a fraction of that found in coffee. Both green and white tea retain very high levels of antioxidants which fight and kill cancer-causing cells, boost the body’s immune system, help lower blood pressure, and reduce the risk of strokes and heart disease.

The surprising thing most people discover from drinking either green or white tea is the level of flavor that comes from such pale brews. In western society, chinese restauraunts sometimes blend black and green tea together so that their customers feel they are getting more value from the 'green' tea they drink - there is an inherent view that pale brews must be watered down. In truth, green or white tea leaves can often be brewed a few times before they finally lose their flavor despite the pale color of the infusion, so you can leave the brewed leaves in the strainer and brew another pot with fresh water after the first is drunk. These teas are wonderful palate refreshers, great to serve before, during and after a meal, and help to diminish the effects of spicy dishes.

Flavored green teas often have flowers and fruit pieces or flavors added to create a special blend. A popular flavored green tea is jasmine and these small white flowers add a subtle taste that smoothes any lingering grassiness sometimes found in green tea. Jasmine green tea is often served in chinese restaurants.  Scroll down to view selections of these products.
