What's Chinese green tea?

Green tea, the most widely consumed variety of tea in China, has gained global recognition for its exceptional health benefits. It holds the distinction of being the earliest type of tea in Chinese history. However, locating a high-quality, genuine cup of green tea made from fresh Spring leaves remains a challenge.

Shanghai Teas is lucky to collaborate with green tea farmers who have a deep connection to where they grow tea - most of them were born and raised on the very same land. Our strong passion drives us to share their fresh leaf teas with you and the rest of the world.

Health Benefits:
Chinese green tea is packed with antioxidants, particularly catechins, which have been linked to various health benefits. These antioxidants help protect the body against free radicals, potentially reducing the risk of chronic diseases. Green tea is believed to support heart health by improving cholesterol levels and reducing blood pressure. It may also assist in weight management by boosting metabolism and aiding in fat oxidation. Additionally, Chinese green tea is associated with promoting digestion, supporting the immune system, and contributing to overall well-being.

The taste of Chinese green tea can vary depending on the specific variety and region. However, Chinese green teas tend to have a delicate, fresh, and slightly vegetal flavor profile. Some teas may exhibit grassy or nutty notes, while others can be subtly sweet or floral. The taste is influenced by factors such as the tea cultivar, growing conditions, processing techniques (such as pan-frying or steaming), and the expertise of the tea master.
