Organic Green Tea

Organic Green Tea

Looking for an organic green tea? Look no further! Arbor Teas is proud to offer a large selection of loose leaf organic green tea, including a variety of flavored blends and single-origin teas — nearly one-third of our organic loose tea catalog. We offer many options from green tea's classic origins (China and Japan) and beyond. Green teas are unoxidized and maintain the leaves' original green color throughout processing. Brew made from these leaves is often vegetative in flavor.

Origins of Our Organic Green Teas

The most traditional origins of our organic green teas include China and Japan. Green teas hailing from China (which is the birthplace of all modern tea varieties) range widely, including nutty Dragonwell tea, bold and smoky Gunpowder tea, and beautifully floral Jasmine tea, to name a few. Our organic green teas from Japan tend to offer much more spinach and seaweed in their flavor and include our top-quality organic Gyokuro and organic Sencha, as well as our organic Matcha, Japan's unique powdered green tea. Additionally, we've expanded our offerings to include organic green tea from Nepal, Sri Lanka (Ceylon), and India.

Organic Green Tea Manufacture

As with any green tea, our organic green teas are unoxidized and maintain the leaves' green color throughout processing. Most green teas are produced in China and Japan, both of which are known for excellent, yet distinct, green tea manufacture. Japan uses steam to halt the oxidation of its green tea during manufacture, while China uses pan- or kiln-firing. This has created two very different camps within the green tea world.

Preparation Tips for Our Organic Green Teas

We recommend brewing our loose leaf organic green teas in water that has been heated until bubbles have begun to form on the bottom of the pan, or 180 degrees Fahrenheit, for 2-3 minutes. Of course, these are only our recommendations. Let your personal taste be the ultimate test! Get more tips on how to brew loose leaf tea.
