Green and White Teas

High in antioxidants and other vital properties, green teas have been a popular beverage for thousands of years. Chinese legend dates green tea back to 2737 BC, when the emperor Shen Nong was boiling water next to an open window, and tea leaves blew through the window and into the pot. He drank the concoction, and enjoyed it so much that tea became a favorite beverage in China. Aside from drinking tea for enjoyment, the Chinese have also used it as a medicinal tool, and have treated a host of maladies and illnesses with tea. Green tea is now consumed around the world, and is currently being studied for its beneficial uses, and as a treatment for a number of different conditions and illnesses.

Green Sencha Leaf Tea View Photo
(Certified Organic)
Origin- Japan
This organic green sencha leaf tea from Japan is a delicate, stimulating beverage made from the season's fresh harvest of the first young leaves. The handpicked tealeaves from the high mountaintops of Japan are immediately steamed to retain their peak flavor and vibrant, brilliant, green color. Extensive research confirms the high anti-oxidant and poly phenol activity found in green tea, and it comes highly recommended as a general cleansing beverage. Because of the caffeine content, green tea should be prepared using small amounts of herb and steeped no longer than 1-2 minutes. Contains caffeine.

Gunpowder Green Tea View Photo
(Certified Organic & Fair Trade Certified)
Origin- China
A hearty, strong, green tea that is rolled in small pellets and was aptly awarded its title, because of its resemblance to the pellets used for gunpowder ammunitions during the 17th century. Originally rolled tightly to preserve freshness and maintain moisture during long voyages overseas, it still holds true as an unsurpassable fresh tea that is full of dark bold color and a striking taste that is unforgettable. Gunpowder tea is astringent and mildly bitter and you can add a very small pinch of Stevia or Spearmint to soften the taste. Contains caffeine.

After the correct aging, the twigs are toasted, providing a lightly flavored tea with a taste reminiscent of nectar sweetness.

White Peony Tea View Photo
(Certified Organic)
Origin- China
White tea is picked early in the season when the buds are still fresh, young and tender. Because of this early picking, the taste white tea produces is very mild, and sweet without the sometimes astringent qualities of regular green teas.
White tea consists of beautiful, full length leaves, having a shape that resembles blossom petals. While the name of this tea can be a misnomer, it should be understood that it is embodied with hues of green, and fermented brown, with delicate white "needles" to lay the final touches.
Contains caffeine.
