Tea Buyers Guide - Green TeaTea Buyers Quick Guide 2018 - Green Tea


Continuing our buying guide, we will now take a look at Green Tea.

No-one could argue with the huge surge in popularity of Green Tea in the western word, yet many of us brew this tea slightly wrongly, and don’t get the best impression of the flavour. There are also really significant variations in flavour of Green Tea depending on the style of leaf and the country of origin.

We will again start by highlighting a few notable values of Green Tea, and then suggest a few teas with very different flavour profiles. We’ll begin by considering what all Green Teas have in common.

Caffeine – yes

Flavour – Generally vegetal but lighter than Black Tea

Oxidised – No

Brewing – Approx 80c for 2 minutes. Most Green Tea should be brewed multiple times

Milk – Not recommended

Here are five great Green Teas with very different flavour profiles. How do you like yours?

Gunpowder Green (China) – Full flavoured Green Tea - slightly smoky and peppery notes

Sencha (Japan) – Bright, grassy and vegetal flavours with a touch of salinity

Teasecco Green Tea (China) – Treat yourself to a combination of gentle Green Tea, sweet apple and Prosecco inspired flavours

Genmaicha (Japan) – Tea and toasted rice – nutty, sweet and grassy flavours

Chun Mee (China) – Slightly less smoky than Gunpowder - earthy, vegetal and fresh
