As good as it gets
Green Tea is distinguished by a flavour that is unusually pure. Green Tea is essential with any Chinese or Japanese meal. When the tea leaves are picked, the fresh leaves can be treated in different ways. The way the leaves are treated determines whether the tea is preserved green (though slightly darker than the fresh tea leaf), turns black or something in between. When producing green tea, the tea leaves are handled very carefully. The leaves are only steamed, carefully divided and then dried. Oolong tea undergoes a very short fermentation process, adding it a little colour - a mix between black and green tea.
