Now that’s qualiTEA.
This mermaid tea is a green tea, that exists of tea leaves that are not fermented. However, the tea leaves do get a bit of heat to get them to oxidate and color slightly. This oxidation process is relatively short for green teas. For some green teas, like gunpowder tea, they roll the green tea leaves into little balls. Usually, they are simply dried. Similar to white tea, green tea has a light and subtle flavor. Because the tea leaves are relatively unharmed, they still contain a lot of their anti-oxidants, but less caffeine (theine) than for example black tea.
