Green tea

green tea form tea-express-tea.com

Why does green tea actually stay green? What is the difference with black tea? First the process for black tea. Well, shortly after breaking the leaves an oxidation process is started (fermentation). The leaves become brown, juices are extracted and essential oils develop. The structure of the leaf changes. This whole process is avoided in green teas. After a preparation of a few hours, the leaves have been made soft and tender. Then, every leaf is quickly roasted (China) or steamed (Japan) with the following result: the leaf stays green, all natural ingredients are preserved, and these are released when steeping your cup of green tea. Noteworthy is the great care that is needed during this whole process: too much steam or heat can cause problems to the taste or have other undesirable effects. The quality is then undoubtedly reduced.
Loose green leaf tea, yummy!

All our green teas, organic and normal, have been put in a clear overview for you.
The teas that are organic can be recognised by the green and white ECO logo.

Gyokuro Mikoto Organic Premium tea

Gyokuro Mikoto Organic Premium tea

From € 5.50

Gyokuro Mikoto Organic Premium tea*

premium thee van theexpress.nl
Gyokuro is a so-called shaded green tea. The tea plant is grown under the shade for approximately three weeks prior to harvest rather than in the full sun. The leaves become dark green and the tannin content is reduced, making a sweeter and less astringent tea. Gyokuro is a noble tea of the highest quality.

The tea tastes umami but also sweet. It has a fatty mouthfeel and tastes grassy with nutty tones.

In order for the tea to taste at its best, and for the savoury-sweet taste to emerge, it is of utmost importance to steep with low temperatures. Keep a maximum of 70°C, but you may want to experiment with 50°C or 60°C. A water temperature higher than 70 will make your tea bitter. Another important point is the correct steeping time. Let your tea steep for 2 minutes, 3 at the most.

Pi Lo Chun Special tea Organic

Pi Lo Chun Special tea Organic

From € 1.65

Pi Lo Chun Special tea Organic*

premium thee van theexpress.nl
The name Pi Lo Chun (or Bi Luo Chun) in Chinese means "Spring Green Snail". It is one of the most prized of China's green teas. Legend tells that many years ago a tea plucker ran out of room to put her freshly plucked tea leaves, so she stuffed her cleavage with the leaves. The warmth of her body gave out a startling aroma, and thus the locals named the tea ‘Scary Fragrance’. The emperor Kang Xi in the seventeenth or eighteenth century thought this name unfit for such a beautiful tea and since he felt the steeped tea looked like tiny green snails he named it like that.

Peach, plum, and apricot trees are planted between the tea bushes. The tea leaves absorb some of the fragrance from these fruit trees hence the special aroma and flavour. It tastes sweet, with a full mouthful and has nutty tones (chestnut).
