On a sunny morning in early spring tea buds and leaves are picked before opening, while they are still covered with silver hair. Traditionally the plucks are laid in shallow baskets to wilt under the sun or in a room with artificial warm air flow for an extended period before they are taken for drying (air drying, solar drying or mechanical drying). In this way it gives a fresh and delicate flavour and most nutrients due to the minimal process it endures.
