A green tea is an unfermented tea. For this green tea only the buds and upper leaves of the tea plant are used. These leaves can be picked several times per season, but each picking will be different because of the weather influences. After picking and fading the leaves, they are steamed or cooked to prevent oxidation or fermentation and to preserve the green color. After this, the leaves are pulled through a roller to break. After this process they still need to dry.
