After the tea leaves are plucked and sorted, they are either steamed or pan fired. Green tea does not go through the oxidation (fermentation) process.
Therefore, when brewed at lower temperatures and for less time, green teas tend to have less caffeine (10-30% of coffee). Greens also tend to produce more subtle flavors with many undertones and accents that connoisseurs treasure. Green tea also has HGCG; the most powerful antioxidant known. Fresh loose leaf green tea is an enjoyable part of a healthy lifestyle.
The varying leaf colors (ranging from green to brown to white) produce an easy-to-drink cup. This tea also exhibits slightly lemony, vegetal and earthy qualities akin to other Darjeeling teas.
