Grøn te (19)
In a process called 'shaqing' (kill-green) in China and 'mushisei' (steaming) in Japan, the leaves are heated to about 70°, shortly after harvest. Here, the enzymes in the leaves are killed there or would turn brown when allowed to interact with air - just like other plants and fruits do. This maintains the plant's fresh notes in fine green leaves.
