Tea Classification Posted on 19 Jul 23:36 , 0 comments

In the tea production, fermentation is actually oxidation. Oxidase starts working as soon as green tea leaves are cultivated. Tea is divided into 3 types by how long oxidase works.

1. Non-fermented Tea : Japanese Green Tea, Chinese Green Tea.

2. Half-fermented Tea : Oolong Tea

3. Fermented Tea : Black Tea

Japanese green tea and Chinese green tea are in the same group but there is a difference in the process of their tea.

In Japan we steam green tea leaves to stop fermentation. In China they roast green tea leaves in a frying pan
