• All About Our Teas

    All tea is produced from a plant called Camellia Sinensis. The thousands of different varieties of teas available in the world only vary in the region it was grown, the time of year picked, and the processing method. The main categories of tea are White, Green, Oolong, and Black. We also sell fruit teas, flower teas, blossom teas, and herbal tisanes, otherwise known as herbal tea. The herbal varieties do not actually contain the Camellia Sinensis tea plant.

    Green teas have only 5-10% the caffeine content of coffee. Green tea is also high in antioxidants, which flushes toxins from the body, boosts the immune system, and helps to prevent cancer. They will also help lower blood pressure, fight gingivitis and cavities, and help regulate blood sugar levels. Green teas should be steeped at a much lower temperature than boiling.
