Common Green Tea Grades
The Chinese had been producing green tea using alternative methods since the sixth century before Christ, but it wasn’t until the eighth century when the Chinese poet Lu Yu wrote about it in detail in his book Ch’a-ching – The book of Tea – that it became widely known. In contrast to black tea, green tea is not fermented during the production process. It was typical in China to prevent the process of oxidation by quickly roasting the tea leaves in a hot wok, though this step also sometimes subdued the tartly spicy to flowery flavours of the tea.
