Herbal Power - Light and mildly stimulating, green tea is a healthy beverage.
Reason to Love - "Tea" can actually be used to mean black or green tea—which both come from the leaves of the same plant, Camellia sinensis, but are processed differently. This green tea is hand plucked, withered, steamed and fired. Green tea has been drunk for many thousands of years as a healthy beverage. Refreshing and mildly stimulating, with a low caffeine content, we love green tea as an afternoon pick-up, as well as for its beneficial properties.
Taste - Mildly tannic, with pleasant lemony notes.
One of the sources of the green tea comes from the Ambootia Tea Estate, nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, in Darjeeling, India. A special place devoted to principles of sustainability—both environmental and social—Ambootia is well-known for its extremely high quality tea, as well as for its forward-thinking practices. Using principles of organic agriculture, the estate cares as much for its people as it does for its plants. The community benefits from Fair Trade practices, which in part contribute to things like free education for the children, free medical treatment and social security-type pensions.
