the bud of each plant to ensure a high quality tea.
5. By this stage, little moisture remains in the tea – just three per cent. 
6. After that, the leaves are ready for rolling or cutting. Factories use 
traditional methods of rolling and crushing or faster modern methods of
cutting, tearing and curling to make teabags.
7. This changes the colour of the leaves from green to copper and creates 
a nice flavour and aroma. Finally, the leaves are fired and dried.
