Description:

High Mountain Green Tea is made of fresh whole tea leaves and is grown in mountainous areas that reach altitudes of 1,000 meters above sea level. These freshly grown leaves are also cultivated using natural farming methods. The high altitude presents the tea leaves with high levels of exposure to the sun, natural precipitation, fresh air, and a great climate. These factors make a great environment for growing healthy tea plants. Here, tea leaves are able to absorb a fresh aroma along with the natural flavors Mother Nature provides. Without the involvement of the oxidation process, this whole-leaf green tea is able to preserve very rich flavonoids and antioxidants. The soothing mixture of green and yellow along with the aromatic infusion of this wonderful beverage is sure to fill your mouth with a smooth, light floral, pleasant, and buttery taste. 

 

Green tea is not fermented or oxidized, and preserves most of the green nature in fresh leaves. Green tea contains rich antioxidant content (catechins) in tea flavonoids, and has less caffeine than coffee. Dried green tea leaves come in many shapes such as open-leaf, flaky, twist, sword, or ball. It often has a distinct fresh and vegetal aroma.
