Refreshing White Tea
The best white teas come from prized harvests consisting entirely of buds. White tea also undergoes the least handling with the leaves being dried naturally or with the help of fans to eliminate some of their moisture. The liquid yield they produce is delicate, extremely refreshing and less likely to contain much caffeine.

Green Tea is mainly produced in China & Japan, where over 1,500 varieties can be found and green teas are the preferred beverage of these countries. The fresh leaves are dehydrated to prevent any possibility of oxidation, which increases the beverage's tannins and the 'green', vegetal character of the liquor.

CHINA

With a rich cultural history going back thousands of years, China, where printing, gunpowder and the compass were invented, is the cradle of numerous discoveries that have transformed civilizations the world over.
Tea has naturally emerged as an essential product, adopted for its medicinal benefits before part of the everyday life of Chinese society.

GREEN TEAS

China overflows with famous green teas, including Long Jing, Bi Luo Chun, Anji Bai Cha and Xin Yang Mao Jian, to name but a few. Green tea represents more than 65 percent of all Chinese production. Methods of plucking vary in different region, usually plucked when young, the bud plus one or two leaves. Immediately after plucking they undergo the process of withering, a traditional method of spreading the leaves on bamboo racks and leave them to dry for a few hours to remove any surplus water. In order to produce green tea, this natural process of oxidation must be interrupted. This is achieved through dehydration.

The major growing regions are located in the south of the country, especially in Zhejiang, Anhui, Henan, Jiangsu and Jiangxi provinces.
