After tea leaves are plucked they are steamed or pan fired. This is to inactivate the enzymes that would otherwise degrade the tea. The tea leaves are then rolled to squeeze the juices to the surface of the leaf. Then the leaves are dried in high-temperature air to reduce moisture.
“Green tea is a widely consumed beverage and its origins date back thousands of years in China. The legendary Chinese emperor, Shen Nung, discovered the detoxifying and health-maintaining properties of green tea around 2700 B.C. In recent years, green tea is being widely studied for its beneficial effect in the treatment and prevention of human diseases. It is considered to be anti-inflammative, anti-oxidative, anti-mutagenic, and anti-carcinogenic and can prevent cardiac disorders.”
