Fresh Loose Leaf Green Tea

The least oxidized of teas, green varietals offer flavors ranging from sweet, vegetal and cream-like to toasty, nutty, naturally sweet and clean. China produces the greatest varieties of green teas in a season that runs from March through May. Green teas will vary in name, appearance and taste from province to province and region to region. Known for their fresh flavors, the wonderfully diverse tastes of green teas are shaped by a number of factors - the traditions of the region, soil and weather conditions, the timing of the harvest and the plucking standard.
