The least oxidized of teas, green varietals offer flavors ranging from sweet, vegetal and cream-like to toasty, nutty, naturally sweet and clean. China produces the greatest varieties of green teas in a season that runs from March through May. Green teas will vary in name, appearance and taste from province to province and region to region. Known for their fresh flavors, the wonderfully diverse tastes of green teas are shaped by a number of factors - the traditions of the region, soil and weather conditions, the timing of the harvest and the plucking standard. China Green Tea Al Yad Extra Special Gunpowder is one of the high quality green tea.
Once plucked and in the tea maker's hands, a number methods are employed for shaping the leaves of Al Yad gunpowder tea- rolled, pan flattened, torn - to name only a few. Then the leaves are "fired" - a method whereby the leaves are heated, drying the leaf and stopping the oxidization process and preserving the rich colors we have come to enjoy. Firing can be accomplished by drying leaves in the sun, baking in ovens, steaming and/or working in a heated pan or wok, all of which result in partially roasted and fully roasted leaves. Each of the above steps will, in turn, create a distinct aroma and taste of Al Yad gunpowder tea.
