With its super antioxidants and cleansing power, this deliciously bittersweet cup will give your day an extra boost. This green leaf from the Anhui Province of Eastern China is a must for every tea lovers collection. When steeped the tea taste is light, fresh and smooth and good anytime of day!
The green tea leaves are hand rolled before drying out to stop the oxidisation process (this is what makes green tea different to black teas and oolong teas). As they have minimal processing (like white teas) they retain all the taste, antioxidants and health benefits within the leaves. Win win!
What are the health benefits of green tea? Due to its minimal manufacturing process, the tea retains all the antioxidants and nutrients from the tea leaves that then make it into the final drink. Green tea has high levels of polyphenols & cathechins (antioxidants) which are linked to cutting the risk of cancer, improving your brain function and lowering the risk of chronic diseases.
Ingredients: Each box contains 75g of loose leaf tea
How to make the perfect green tea:
Step 1: Use one teaspoon per cup
Step 2: Use water that has cooled to 80 degrees, adding freshly boiled water to green tea will cause the taste to be bitter! (You can do this by adding a splash of cold water first or allowing the kettle to cool down for approximately 2 mins)
Step 3: Brew for 90 seconds, or leave for longer according to personal taste
Step 4: Green tea is best without milk & can be resteeped 3-5 times
My worst nightmare, you’re out of stock!
Guilt free sipping
At We Are Tea, we're on a mission to bring the highest quality tea to the masses in a way that everyone can be proud of. Our blends are ethically sourced via the Ethical Tea Partnership which works on facilitating strategic sustainability projects, rigorous health and safety standards, and increasing farmer's resilience to climate change.
Our plastic free tea bags are made from soilon, a bi-product of corn starch which can fully biodegrade under the correct conditions in 3 – 6 months.
We call this guilt-free sipping, and it's tea-rrific
Storage instructions: Keep away from moisture (until it lands in your cup!) We recommend you store your tea in an opaque, airtight container. It might look pretty in glass, but the light damages the tea leaves and subsequent taste. Nooo!
