Have You Gone Green?

Green Tea

When we're out and about at events meeting people, we often ask them what kind of tea they like. Lots of folks just say "green tea", but many are really surprised to learn that there are tons of green teas out there. It could be said that green tea really isn't a noun, it's an adjective. A single name doesn’t do green tea justice because there are so many different types available. Check out our Green Tea section and you'll find more than 20 green tea varieties, and that's just a selection of our favorites.

If you've yet to "go green" why not try Matcha, Sencha, Gyokuro from Japan? Or you could try a flavored variety from China like Mint Green Tea or Organic Green Pekoe, a mild green tea with an amazing aroma and sweet finish.

Green teas all have different health benefits and contain different levels of caffeine. The primary reason why green tea is believed to have greater health benefits than black tea is due to the way the leaves are processed. Green tea leaves are picked and immediately processed to minimize oxidization; this means they aren't allowed to ferment like black tea. That's why green tea retains more antioxidants.

Some of the purported health benefits of green tea remain unproven (medically speaking), although thousands of years of Chinese and Japanese culture may argue differently. So please do your own research or consult with your doctor before starting any new dietary regimen, or if you want to use green tea for medicinal purposes.
