GREEN TEAS

Green teas are made when tea leaves are withered, fixed, rolled and dried in a way that no oxidation happens to the leaves. Generally you can recognize green tea also by the green colour of the dry leaves, but we at Renegade Tea Estate haven't managed to capture that bright green colour just yet and are still in search of a technique to keep the beauty of green leaves until the end. 

Although many people believe that green teas are always bitter, then this is not actually true, while some green teas are naturally astringent, then for other it comes out only as a side effect of brewing tea with too hot water. From our selection the Green Velvet for example is a very smooth and sweet green tea which doesn't get angry even if you leave it to stand in the cup for too long.

Green Velvet

€8,00

The sweetest and mildest version of our green teas. It’s perfect for all the tea lovers who tend to forget the leaves to steep for too long. The taste is fresh, smooth and vegetal with a sweet aftertaste of mangos. Almost as if someone had secretly added a dash of sugar to your cup. The tea has a fresh yellowish colour and a sweet aroma. 

We don’t know yet if it was the spring or something in the production process, but those leaves really did feel like velvet under our fingers while we untangled the rolled leaves. Now we are thrilled to share this velvet sensation in the form of this tea!

Green tea with a slight kick! Georgian Pastoral smells like freshly cut grass mixed with the sweet aroma of chocolate cookies and tastes like wild apples. The aftertaste has a slight kick of astringency and some floral notes.

Much like Georgian countryside, this tea is sweet and welcoming- a true delight. But if you look closer, you start to see all the imperfections… Like the lack of stable jobs in the Georgian countryside of some small oxidation in this green tea. True Georgian Pastoral that you can’t really help but to fall in love with, regardless of all the imperfections.

Green tea is not the traditional tea in Georgia. Although approximately 150 000 tons of tea was produced during the heydays of the Georgian tea industry, all of it was almost exclusively black tea. We believe that the tea plants grown on lands that have been free of chemicals for nearly 30 years, make also a great basis for high-quality organic green tea. Combining chemical-free farming and modern techniques of processing, we try to bring out the uniqueness of Georgian green tea.
