About Green Tea
TEA comes from only ONE plant, that being the Camellia sinensis plant. Beverages made with anything else, like chamomile, mint, rosehips, are referred to as an infusion.
Green TeaAll our tea is handpicked where just "two leaves and a bud" are plucked (that being the youngest shoots on the bush). This is referred to as the orthodox tea plucking method.
Once harvested, the green leaves are steamed and then dried to prevent too much oxidation from occurring that would turn the green leaves brown
and alter their fresh-picked flavor.
Green Tea contains very unique properties that are beneficial to human health.
Green tea does have more health benefits than black tea which can be attributed to its lack of processing. Green tea is higher in protective polyphenols. The major polyphenols in green tea are flavonoids, the most active of which are catechins and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) which function as powerful antioxidants.
