PRODUCTION PROCESS OF GREEN TEA
The green tea to teapot production process is a multi-step process that begins with the cultivation of Camellia sinensis plants. The leaves are picked and then processed quickly to prevent oxidation. The first step in processing is fixing or steaming the leaves. This helps to preserve the green color of the leaves and stop the enzymatic activity that leads to oxidation.
Then the leaves are dried and rolled to keep their shape. Some green teas are even shaped by hand.
After drying and rolling, the leaves are sorted and qualified according to their quality and size. The best leaves are used for the premium green teas, while the lower quality is used for less expensive teas.

To properly brew flavored green tea, follow these steps:
- Start by boiling fresh, filtered water. The water temperature for green tea is between 70-80 degrees Celsius, for most flavored green teas.
- Take a teapot or a cup and place the right amount of flavored green tea in it. This is usually about 1 teaspoon of flavored green tea per cup. Or 3-4 teaspoons for a large pot of tea.
- Pour the water over the flavored green tea. Make sure the water completely covers the flavored green tea.
- Let the flavored green tea steep for about 2-3 minutes. This ensures the perfect taste balance.
- Pour the tea into a teacup and enjoy the delicate taste and aroma of the flavored green tea.
Keep in mind that brewing instructions may vary depending on the type of flavored green tea you are using. Some flavored green teas require a lower temperature and a longer steeping process. It is therefore recommended to consult the packaging of the flavored green tea for specific brewing instructions.
