Shop for premium quality green teas at our online tea store
Green tea has been drunk in China for over 4500 years. Buddhist monks introduced it to Japan and it reached Europe some 400 years ago. Far Eastern medicine esteems green tea as a cure for many physical and mental troubles. It is said that green tea cleanses the spirit.
For green tea to exhibit its characteristics in the most beneficial way, allow boiled water to cool down to around 60 to 90 degrees. As a rule of thumb, around 2.6 grams per cup should be used and brewed between 2 and 4 minutes. Green tea can also be infused several times given that the leafs do not dry out.
At our online tea store you will find green teas from classic Chinese gunpowder, Sencha or Bancha, to more rare Taiwanese Long Jing or Kenyan green tea.
