A tea tree takes five years to grow before it can be picked. After thirty years of age you can’t produce it. The stem must be chopped off to make a new one . A plant can serve for one hundred years.
Green tea comes from a Sinensis tree which is grown in China and Japan. The trees are dormant(not producing) in winter, but the new leaves can be picked all year round. The earlier leaves are usually the best quality teas. There are four kinds of tea: green tea, black tea, oolong tea and white tea. All tea comes from the sinensis tree, but when they go to the factory they go through different processing. The next page will show you how to process black tea.
