NOTE! There are many stories about this beverage being discovered, but the most common and beautiful one tells that Yan Di, the God of Sun, instructed his people to boil water in a vat. A random breeze swept several leaves of a tea tree into the vat. Yan Di enjoyed the beverage so much that he commanded it to be cooked again and distributed to all the people of China.

In addition, it contains vitamins and minerals, antioxidants and many other nutrients. It should be noted that the finest varieties of green tea come from the Chinese mountain provinces.

Criteria



There are many types and varieties of green tea today. All have comparable characteristics, but some distinctions are also found. Therefore, when choosing tea you should always pay attention to its features, subtleties in the manufacture, properties, taste, and aroma, etc. The choice should be based on personal preferences and expectations.

Taste and aroma



First of all, when choosing tea, you should understand what flavor you need and prefer. Today there is a rich variety of flavors and aromas of green tea. It is essential to note that the beverage can be natural as well as with additives for flavor and aroma. Natural teas have more beneficial properties and do not harm the body. Therefore, it is worth to prefer such types of tea. In such varieties, natural dried fruits and berries, as well as leaves of different flowers, aromatic herbs and spices (cloves, cinnamon, etc.) are actually taste and aroma additives. The taste of the drink is also influenced by the way it is made. Traditionally, tea leaves are dried according to different technologies on an open fire or in a dry room. But, there are also unique technologies, such as the Japanese Match. This type of tea is steamed, stopping fermentation completely. The leaves are dried and crushed to powder after steaming. Such tea has a special unique and unforgettable taste and aroma. This is a traditional Japanese powder tea. We've selected only natural green tea types for you. Some of them have natural flavors that are totally harmless to the body. Check out the offered range and make your choice.

Properties



Green tea is history's first drink that is today's most popular drink on the planet. Its useful properties were discovered in ancient China. It was often used in medicine because of them. Nowadays, most of the useful properties of tea leaf can be preserved thanks to modern technologies. However, useful properties may also depend on a leaf's variety and type, as well as the processing method. With traditional drying, tea leaves may undergo partial fermentation (oxidation). This changes some of the drink's features and properties. While the leaves' composition is changed slightly. Fermented teas contain fewer antioxidants, but they absorb and remove toxins better with more iron and other useful minerals. Less fermented and unfermented tea leaves contain more antioxidants and vitamins, so genuine green teas produced without fermentation are real cocktails of vitamins. And Japanese Matcha, produced without fermentation and drunk with crushed leaves, is the most useful among these teas. Given the enormous variety of green tea varieties and types, choose the one that best meets your personal expectations. For example, teas that contain mint have a soothing effect. Therefore, drinking them at night and before bedtime, on vacation or after a hard day of work is better. Mint teas are perfectly refreshing. Taking pure green tea or adding fruit is recommended in the morning. Such teas perfectly tone up, invigorate and energize. In cold weather, such teas perfectly warm and prevent colds. We selected some of the best elite green tea varieties with different properties for you. Check out the range to make the right choice.

Type and variety



Taste, flavor and healthy properties depend directly on green tea type and variety. Nowadays, there are a lot of different sorts and types of tea. This largely depends on where the tea plant is grown, on the type of plant (bush or tree). Furthermore, the harvesting method and time have an enormous impact. The most valuable and elite teas are harvested in spring from April to June. Tea leaves are saturated with the maximum quantity of nutrients, minerals, and vitamins during this period. Also, only by hand are collected the best tea varieties and only the youngest leaves. After harvesting, the tea is processed. And the technology itself is important in this case, which allows partial fermentation. The fermentation level also determines the type of beverage. The fermentation produces black tea. But green tea can also undergo partial fermentation. The beverage's taste, aromatic and beneficial properties depend on the fermentation level. There are also several types of green tea worth knowing:
· Leaf – dried large and medium leaves.
· Granulated – when drying leaves are rolled into small granules.
· Powder – tea bags (includes, but not always, the lowest quality leaves).
· Pressed – pressed in pills, cubes, etc. Any form is possible.
We have selected for you several different varieties and types of green tea. Explore the offered range and make your choice.

Packaged or leaf tea



Nowadays tea can be supplied in two types:
· Leaf – granules or dried leaves.
· Packaged – the same leaf tea but in bags.
There's not much difference between these types. The second option is divided into disposable portions and is suitable for brewing. But bags are made of special paper that also affects tea's taste and aroma. That's why the best elite varieties are not packaged in such bags. The best leaf teas are always sold loose in metal packages (in extreme cases in sealed paper packages). In addition, packaged teas are not always of high quality. Manufacturers often collect tea waste (stems, low-quality leaves, etc.) in disposable portioned bags. Therefore, when choosing such tea, you should be careful. However, only high-quality tea is still used by the most responsible manufacturers, and only high-quality paper is used for disposable bags that do not give a taste and aroma. Therefore, such teas are practically the same as leaf teas. We have selected only the best quality green teas and varieties for you from the most responsible and reputable manufacturers. Therefore, only in the way of brewing is the difference between leaf tea and packaged tea. Bags are convenient at work and on the road when you're in a hurry. Leaf tea is more suitable for leisurely tea drinking, for brewing in a beautiful teapot, family dinners, etc. Take a look at the range and choose the one that suits you best.

Additives



Often people think that these are harmful substances, having seen a note in the tea description that the drink contains taste and aroma additives. However, that's not always the case. Natural fruits are often used as flavor additives and aroma is added and enhanced with herbs, leaves, and flowers. Such mixtures are very useful because they add to the properties of fruit and natural herbs the properties of tea leaves. Also, elite teas can be impregnated with natural essential oils as taste and aroma additives. They are also useful and natural additives that do not harm the body. In traditional Chinese teas, impregnation with essential oils has been used for many years to give the drink not only a unique taste but also useful properties. Especially for you, we have selected these types of tea from proven and high-quality manufacturers. Check out the options, read the descriptions, and choose.

Storage packaging



The packaging, of course, does not affect the quality, taste, and flavor in particular. However, there are two important factors. First, good packaging preserves all of the tea leaves' useful properties, does not allow them to sweat, does not allow moisture and sunlight to pass through. Thus, tea can be stored for a long time without losing its taste and aroma. Second, a good metal jar not only preserves and protects the leaves well, but it is also a convenient container, from which tea is easily taken out, and which can later be used for other purposes or filled with new tea. The packaging is the manufacturer's face, among other things. The higher the tea level and class, the more expensive and beautiful the packaging used by the manufacturer. Various rules for brewing and storing tea, information about the manufacturer and a curious fact about the product can also be written on the packaging. At the same time, it must be understood that high-quality metal packaging also costs extra money. For this reason, by packing leaves in sealed paper bags, the manufacturer can often save money on the packaging to make them cheaper for elite teas. We have selected some of the best tea varieties for you that are delivered in different packages, both in paper and metal. Check out the range and choose the option you like best.
