Green tea leaves generally undergo less than 5% oxidation. This level of oxidation allows for the pure flavor of the tea leaf to shine through and minimizes the processing impact on the inherent nutrients and vitamins. Our teas are also hand rolled to protect the leaf's surface area to further ensure that the tannins are unaffected. This careful process results in a tea that has a light, crisp, sweet flavor and a light floral aroma.
Green teas are high in anti-oxidants such as vitamin C, which help to boost the immune system. In addition to anti-oxidants, green teas also contain polyphenols, minerals such as zinc and chromium, and various other nutrients that help maintain a healthy lifestyle. Green tea is also though to help reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.
