TEA CULTIVATION: HOW BLANKETING METHODS BECAME PART OF THE PROCESS

The tea bush is known to produce amino acids during tea cultivation. These are transferred to the fresh buds for their initial development.

While amino acids are chemical components that are responsible for a sweet, umami flavor, catechin components imbue the final product with a rather bitter taste.
