Green tea is one of the most consumed teas around the world. It has become popular because of its specific flavor, but more importantly because of its health benefits. Though it’s the top-notch tea among tea lovers, many don’t know where it comes from and how it is produced.
Green tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant. The same plant is the origin of five other popular teas: black, white, oolong, yellow, and pu’er tea. They do come from the same plant, but their journeys to our cups differ. One of the things which makes them different is the level of oxidation. White tea is barely oxidized, and therefore has a much softer and delicate taste, while black tea is allowed to oxidize fully. But, let’s focus on green tea. It’s a tea with minimal level of oxidation which undergoes seven stages of production until it makes it to our cups.
