The Twinings Story: In 1706, Thomas Twining began selling fine tea from an English storefront in The Strand, London. Today, Twinings still sells some of the world's best teas from the original store and in more than 100 countries throughout the world. Master Blender's Notes: Notes: Smooth, fresh, earthy. Colour: Bright, honey-yellow. Steep Time: 2 minutes (recommended). Green tea is the world's most consumed type of tea. Unlike other tea types, freshly picked leaves are quickly heated after harvesting to prevent the tea from oxidizing. Two methods are used to heat the leaves - pan fired for an earthy, more roasted taste, or steamed at high temperatures for a lighter, more delicate taste. This process stops the enzymatic activity in the leaf which allows them to retain their distinctive taste, flavour, aroma and appearance. Green tea is mostly produced in China, where 80% of the world's Green tea is sourced. This blend includes green tea from the Hunan and Zhejiang Provinces. Zhejiang, which is on the Eastern coast of China is covered with hills and small mountain ranges. This picturesque region has a humid subtropical climate with distinct seasons and the perfect combination of rain and sunshine. Our tea is carefully selected to yield a smooth tea with a fresh, natural taste. - Mike Wright, Master Blender. www.twiningsusa.com. nongmoproject.org.
