Indian Green Tea

 

Indian Green Tea. Why is it special?

Have you ever tried Indian green tea? You are in for a real treat. What other tea can be so muscatel-lish like Darjeeling and mellow and delicate like traditional green tea at the same time? India is known for its sublime blacks. Green tea is a relatively new concept there, however, it is gaining popularity. Health benefits of green tea is definitely a factor in this trend. Green Darjeelings and Assams have been becoming increasingly available over the years and have proved to be remarkable and unique.

How is tea made?
There are several steps in tea production. Right after tea leaves are harvested, they are getting withered in the temperature controlled environment to remove excessive moisture. Then, the tea leaves are rolled into strips. Next step for some tea types is fermenting, or oxidizing. The type (“color”) of the tea depends on the level of oxidation. Black tea is fully oxidized. In green tea production, the oxidation process is prevented by applying heat to the leaves: by steaming or pan-firing.

Another shade of Grey

Indian Earl Grey green tea is worthy of a special note here. This is probably not exactly what you would expect from your typical robust Earl Grey. However, citrusy bergamot and green tea seem to be made for each other and Indian tea producers finally nailed it.
