It is just those feelings of well-being and mental health that led us to name our delicious citrus-floral green tea Oasis.
All tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant. How the leaves of the plant are processed and their level of contact with oxygen determines the type of tea. The more processing the leaves go through, the darker the leaves become, resulting in a distinctive color and taste characteristic. There are four main varietals of tea: black, green, white, and oolong. Tea contains substances called flavonoids, which are powerful antioxidant polyphenols. Antioxidant polyphenols help protect the body's cells from damage due to harmful molecules called free radicals. Regardless of the processing method, black, green, white and oolong teas all contain polyphenols. In fact, tea ranks as high as or higher than many fruits and vegetables in the ORAC score, a score that measures antioxidant potential of plant-based foods. Green tea is a variety of tea that has undergone minimal oxidation during processing, resulting inunique catechins, especially epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). Green tea has half the caffeine of black tea and varies widely in appearance and taste. Our green tea captures the fresh clean air of high mountain tea gardens and defines how green tea should taste. Fresh harvested leaves are skillfully steamed, rolled and pan-fired in a wok for the ultimate cup.
Average Customer Rating
I received my Oasis tea today and I have to say that I'm really pleasantly surprised. It's light and flavorful and not over powered by the citrus. This is turning into one of my favorites.

Tasty Green Tea
I got a sample of this in a birthday box and was surprised. I usually have a very strong physical negative reaction to green tea. My husband doesn't care for green tea, either, but I had him try it and he loved it. We always have an iced container of Oasis in the fridge now for him to take to work in his Starbucks cup (no more Starbucks tea runs before work) or for working out in the yard. We like it brewed strong.

Really Good Stuff
I am only edging my way into green teas and this is a very good blend - you can actually taste the green tea as the sturdy undernote to the light citrus and sweetness which must come from the flowers. Well done!

A green tea for the rest of us
I've never been able to get myself to truly like plain green tea, even though I try to be a good sport at Asian restaurants. But I got ahold of some of this Oasis and it's so nice. I think my favorite part is taking a nice big sniff when I open the cannister. It's pretty to look at and smells lemony and sweet with a hint of earthy substance underneath. It's mild and tasty in the cup. It's my afternoon treat at work. So pleasant.

"Light and mellow"
"Light and mellow with a smoothness that is soothing. The most delicate of green teas forms a base for this blend which has slight whispery notes of flowers and citrus. The flavoring on this tea is extremely light, so it tastes more like a hint of roses behind a slightly tangy background."

Oasis Green Tea
This is my favorite green tea of all time. I'll never drink anything else. I even take it with me when I go on vacation!!

I normally steer clear of green teas
I normally steer clear of green teas, but this one is great. Very delicate with a lemony taste. I have let it sit too long before, and it even tastes great cooled.

Smooth, lemon, floral, and yes, green tea. I usually do not love green tea, but this is a very satisfying concoction. Can be bitter if brewed too long, so keep it on the one to two minute side.

The caffeine level in a cup of tea can vary by tea type, steeping practices and even the particular tea harvest. We use the following designations as guidelines for the caffeine levels of our teas:
Robust, high caffeine teas; 50-100mg
Lower caffeine teas with shorter steeping times; 30-50mg
Tea/herbal blends with less than 30mg
Decaf tea retains a tiny amount of caffeine
Herbal teas are 100% caffeine free
These steeping guidelines produce the best results for our palates. Use them as a guideline, but you may certainly experiment and find the best results for yours.
