Green teas, which come in many variations and styles, have been the fastest growing type of teas in Britain over the last five years, mainly due to their reputed health benefits (antioxidants). In fact, green teas have been celebrated for centuries in China for their subtle nuances and distinguished taste, as well as for their natural goodness

Green teas are made from the same plant species as black teas and therefore do contain some caffeine (though less than black teas) – however, as the leaves are not oxidised they retain their green colour and are lighter and more refreshing.

High quality green teas that are correctly brewed (allow the water to cool a little after boiling and don't steep the leaves for too long) can give a fantastically rewarding taste experience - deliciously sweet, fresh and smooth.
