JASMINE DRAGON TEARS © WiseTeaGarden.com
  Green tea is an unfermented tea, which goes through the pan-firing or steam process right after plucking (Chinese green tea manufacturers generally uses a pan-firing process on a hot wok or hot air. In Japan, green tea is processed by using steam for this purpose). The infusion of green tea is yellowish green and aromatic with a fresh taste. The healthy properties of green tea are largely attributed to polyphenols. They give green tea its antioxidant properties and slightly bitter character. Recent research conducted on large population of green-tea drinkers support the idea that regular consumption of green tea may prevent certain cancers, reduce risk of cardio-vascular disease, gum inflammation, and works as a weight-loss agent. Green tea also contains alkaloids like caffeine, theobromine and theophylline, that contribute to its effectiveness as a mild stimulant. Though drinking Green Tea has lots of benefits, including anti-aging effect, please drink it in low to moderate amounts. Do not overdose. Instead, try to replace an extra dose of caffeine with physical activities. Tea Tutorial »

For the safe and appropriate medicinal use of Green Tea, consult your healthcare professional or please visit Natural Standard: The Authority on Integrative Medicine ». We suggest not to consume Green Tea during pregnancy or breastfeeding unless it is Decaffeinated. When cooking with Green Tea, do not use it in greater than recommended quantities.

Steeping Time: For the best taste, allow the boiling water to "rest" for a minute before using. Pour it over the tea, and allow it to brew for only one minute. To obtain maximum health benefits, brew a green tea for 3 to 5 minutes. Steeping green tea too hot or too long will result in a bitter, astringent brew, regardless of the original quality of a tea.

Shelf life of nitrogen-flushed and vacuum sealed packs: 20-22 years.
  CHINESE DRAGON PEACHES © metrotea.com

What is Gunpowder tea? By a legend, the name Gunpowder was given by a young English clerk who thought the tiny rolled green balls looked like gunpowder. The Chinese name for Gunpowder Tea is Siaou Chu, which literally means large leaf. Rolling the leaf has two effects on quality of the tea. It forces to the surface flavorful juices that otherwise would remain in the leaf. Rolling also forces out water, thus helping to reduce the tea's final moisture content. The pellet retains its shape during firing and keeps its freshness longer than tea not manufactured in pellet form.
