Green tea is obtained from the same plant cultivated on the tea plantations of Asia where black tea is produced. The difference between the two is the low rate of oxidation permitted while processing the leaves of the former. Green tea not only makes a satisfying brewed beverage, but the dried leaf is also used to produce infusions and extracts for us in skin toners, liquid soaps, shampoos and other cosmetics. The powdered leaf is used in facial masks and body powders, sometimes in combination with other powdered herbs.
Loose Green Tea, 1/4lb
Green tea comes from the same plant as black tea (Camellia sinensis), but is less processed so it undergoes less oxidation. Loose leaf green tea is used to make tea (what else?) and infusions.
The leaf blends well with many other herbs, flowers and spices in tea blends. Liquid infusions are used in cosmetic preparations for hair and skin. In addition to this Chun Mee green tea we also carry a variety of other green teas.
