Every kind of tea leaves goes through a steaming process, and in green tea leaves cases, it happens right after picking. Green tea leaves, when picked, are sent right away to a crude tea factory where the process goes through under high heat. The steaming process is crucial as it is responsible for stopping oxidation in tea leaves. However, if the process is skipped, then the enzymes present in tea leaves change the original components by oxidizing polyphenol, resulting in the oxidation of catechin.

This post covers everything you need to know about sencha green tea, including several tips for brewing a delicious cup of tea.
This premium matcha is one of the most luxurious, made from premium Japanese green tea curated from the dirt that grows the tea. The farmers carefully cultivate crops of thick grasses around their tea trees and sugarcane syrup so that they provide added nutrients directly to the soil as a compostable blanket every winter. The farmers also collaborate with researchers from Shizuoka University to study soil and the impacts its sweetness has on the taste of the tea it cultivates.
Gyokuro is a special type of green tea shaded from the sun for 20 days with specially made mats which allows the caffeine levels to increase in the leaves, in addition to allowing the amino acids to get stronger, producing a sweeter and stronger flavor. Because of the cultivation process, the leaves have a very particular odor that is impossible to confuse.
