Green Tea

Green tea is made from the same tea plant as black tea (camellia sinensis), but it is treated much more delicately during harvesting and specially processed in order to prevent the leaves from turning black. It was the preferred type of tea in Britain during the 18th century and remains the most popular tea in many parts of Asia.
