Green and White Teas

Organic Green TeaHigh in antioxidants and other vital properties, green teas have endured as one of the most revered and consumed beverages for thousands of years. Chinese legend dates green tea back to 2737 BC, when the emperor Shen Nong was boiling water next to an open window, and tea leaves blew through the window and into the pot. He drank the concoction, and enjoyed it so much that tea became a favorite beverage in China. Aside from drinking tea for pleasure and enjoyment, the Chinese have also used it as an indispensable medicinal tool and have treated a host of maladies and illnesses through its continued use. Green tea is now consumed around the world, and because of its anti-oxidant value it is currently being studied for numerous health benefits, and as a treatment for a number of illnesses.

Here you will find a nice offering of the world’s finest imported tea which is guaranteed to provide you with an unrivaled sipping experience.
