Green tea is made by - Steaming the leaf is steamed immediately after picking to soften them for rolling. More importantly, the heat inactivates the enzymes and prevents fermentation. Rolling releases the natural juices which will be held within the finished leaf to give tea its flavor. Drying the leaf remains green in color. Green tea is packed with only 3 percent residual moisture so that the finished tea will not undergo any further change. White tea does not require rolling. They are processed in such a way to avoid oxidization - which defines green teas. Due to dollar and market fluctuations, prices are subject to change without notice.
Snow Dragon Yellow Buds is produced the same way as greens, but with an added step to coax out extra aroma and to remove some of the grassiness, (a process that turns the leaves yellow), this special tea dates back as far as the Qing Dynasty. Plucked in small batches once a year from the Sichuan mountains, these large-leafed buds produce a golden-hued liquor that is soft and sweet in taste. If you're feeling a bit adventurous, give this yellow tea a try!
Note: 4 oz. of loose tea serves 20-30 cups.
