Ancient Methods in Modern Times

The secret to taste, scent and texture is not so much whether green tea is grown in shade or sunlight, but rather, what happens immediately after the harvest. The centuries-old Japanese method is to steam leaves for up to 60 seconds, and requires the utmost skill. This preserves the levels of theanine, the amino acid that helps increase its mindfulness qualities.
