The most important element of loose leaf green tea production is preventing oxidation and preserving the green color of the fresh leaf. Requiring a skilled hand, the tea leaf picker must be careful not to bruise any leaves throughout the day’s harvest. Shortly after harvesting, the leaves are treated with heat to stymie any enzymatic action and to fortify the “green” color. Depending on the country of origin, green tea is de-enzymined by firing in a pan or basket, or steamed. Loose leaf green teas can have a wide range of flavors, often described as bittersweet, grassy, sweet, nutty, buttery, floral, and earthy.
