Tea is an emotion, an attitude in India. For the largest tea-drinking nation in the world, the milky, sugary, ‘chai’ tea blends are the most popular.
Green tea is withered, rolled, and immediately dried. It is not oxidised. It resembles the original plucked leaf – a small springtime leaf bud that contains abundant nutrients and oils sent up from the roots after a period of winter dormancy. The leaves are fixed quickly under high heat to destroy enzymes and prevent oxidation. Alternatively, it is done by steaming or pan-firing. This preserves the aromas and volatile oils in the leaves.
