Green Tea

Green tea is made from the leaves and buds of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis. Green teas have many different methods of being produced, but they all share in common the fact that shortly after the leaves are harvested, they are somehow heated. This process prevents any oxidation from occuring. Some green teas are steamed (in Japan for instance) and others are pan-fired. There are several hundred types of green tea. Some have flat leaves while others may have rolled or curled leaves. Some are sun grown, like sencha, while others are shade grown, like japanese gyokuro.
