Loose Cut Green Tea
What are the benefits of Green Tea?
Part Used - Dried leaves
Description - Although much green tea is grown throughout India and Sri Lanka, our Green Tea is from Japan. A small shrub that grows up to 30 feet, typically it is harvested when it is 6 or 7 feet tall. Green, black, white and oolong tea all come from the same source: the camellia sinensis plant. What differentiates them is how the leaves are processed. White tea, the least processed, is produced from tea leaf buds. Green tea leaves are picked early and preserved through steaming or baking to prevent them from fermenting. Oolong and black tea leaves are picked and exposed to the air for a certain period of time to ferment. Oolong is partially fermented and black tea is completely fermented. Because green tea is picked early, it maintains its natural healthy qualities and gives it a delicious flavor.
Suggested Use - One or two cups daily. Store green tea in a cool, dry dark place in a tin or dark container. Do not store in the refrigerator.
