The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.
Green tea's fresh, verdant taste is down to its processing: the leaves are heated shortly after picking, stopping the oxidation process that would eventually turn them into black tea. Some of the best green teas are found in Japan and China, where the techniques of firing or steaming the leaves have been perfected over many centuries.
