Green tea is one of the healthiest beverages in the world. According to an old Chinese legend, tea made it to our drinking habits by accident.

The legend says that Chinese emperor Shen Nung was taking a walk and carrying a cup of hot water when the wind blew and shook the tree.

The wild tea leaves fell into the cup and gave the water a pleasant scent, taste and goldish color.

Tea went a long way from being used as a medicine to becoming an everyday custom. Nowadays, it is one of the most consumed beverages in the world.

There are many types of tea, but green tea is probably the most well-known. It comes from the plant Camellia Sinensis, and it is produced with minimal oxidation.

A lesser known fact is that yellow, green, oolong, black tea and pu’er tea come from the same plant.

Although they come from the same plant, they have different flavor, color, and scent.

One of the things that differentiates one from another is the level of oxidation.

Out of the aforementioned, green tea is the least oxidized tea.

Its health benefits, specific scent and grass-like flavor made it popular throughout the world.

Green tea travels a long journey from stage one until it makes to our cups.

Check out the infographic below and find out about the stages of green tea production – from harvesting and processing to packaging and labeling, until it is consumed.
