Green tea refers to the color of the processed tea leaves. Green teas are processed much less than black teas, but more than white, so the fresh flavor and appearance of the leaf is retained. The short processing time results in the tea's high catechin content and may provide health benefits such as lowering blood pressure. The flavor varies widely depending on several factors including time of harvest, elevation, weather and soil.

Select leaves are picked by hand and allowed to wilt under natural sunlight when possible and weather conditions permit. The Chinese then fire the leaves in a hot pan to prevent oxidation. The Japanese use steam. The leaf may or may not be folded or rolled at this point, before a final drying. The drying time and temperature has tremendous effects on the flavor and has been perfected over many years of trial and error. Dry leaves are then sorted for quality and given grades.

Our selection contains various flavors created by skilled artisans who take several factors in to account, including time of harvest, elevation, weather, soil and processing tweaks individual to the tea master. Some teas, such as Sencha, have the same characteristics as a freshly plucked leaf while Golden Mountain Needle has highly refined and smooth characteristics. If you haven't already, spend the time to find the best green tea for you.

Flavored teas will either contain real pieces of fruits or flowers or will be scented. Scenting tea involves layering the loose tea leaves with the fruit or flower until the flavor has been absorbed in the tea. The flavoring agents are then removed to leave only the tea. Our selection of flavored green teas are created with all natural flavors and premium fruit and flower pieces, absolutely no artificial flavorings.

It is very important to monitor the steep time. Steeping too long will make the tea bitter. Always add more tea instead of more time for a stronger cup of tea.

Green teas from Forbidden City Tea can be infused multiple times. We suggest adding 30 seconds to the previous infusion time.
