Transparency is one of the pillars of the culture of our company. In this light, we want to describe how we make our Tea’d Greens. Considering that we (chose to) follow the ancient tea making techniques that are practiced in China this will also be a bit of a primer on how tea is made in general.
All of our tea making equipment comes from the Orient. We worked through the different logistics of ensuring the equipment would be compatible with our process as we were not starting with the traditional tea leaf but rather the young green leaves of barley, spelt and oats.
To this end we want to give full credit to our contact, Chois, who worked tirelessly and patiently with us to develop our process. He also became our guru on all things tea and we are forever grateful for his mentorship. We continue to discover the art of making tea that comes from the wisdom of experience. Through trial and error combined with our quest to make the best tea we can guides us in the discovery of the tiny details that can make such a big difference. I suppose this applies to many things in life. In any event, here are our processing steps.
As noted we start with the fresh young green leaves of barley, spelt and oats ( see Our Farm for details about our farming practices). The lush leaves are hand harvested from our fields and transported within minutes to our on farm processing facility. The dedicated building is a steel and fabric building we purchased from a company in the Netherlands that creates an insulated space with a high ceiling and a bright airy atmosphere.
