Green Teas can also be described as ‘unoxidised’ as no chemical changes occurs during processing. Methods differ from country to country. There is a short period of withering, then steaming or pan-firing to extract enzymes from the leaves. Some leaves such as Gunpowder are hand-rolled or as eyebrow and spiral shapes. The leaves are then dried in wok-like pans over heat to arrest oxidation.
