About This Product
Green teas are grown in China, Japan, and Korea, with an increasing amount grown in Southeast Asia. Whatever the region, the most sought-after green teas are those picked in the springtime. The least oxidized of all tea types, Green Tea is crafted with the application of heat in a step called Sha Qing or “firing” which halts the enzyme that causes oxidation and locks in the green leaf color. As you explore to find your favorite types of green tea, consider the firing method, harvest season and place of origin.
In this gift set you will find a collection of some of our favorite green teas and a Simple Brew teapot, our versatile everyday teapot that is perfect for tasting your way through your green tea journey. Simply refer to the brewing instructions on each tea’s package to brew the finest cup of tea. For green teas, pay special attention to the water temperature to avoid over-extracting the tea.
