Did You Know?

More Info

The multi-step process of steaming and pan-firing before rolling to stop the oxidation process is what yields the numerous health benefits that growing research is finding in the drinking of a cup of green tea. Revered for its vegetal fresh flavor and distinct taste, Tea Forté works with its growers to produce green teas that are distinct in flavor and artisan processed to yield high concentrations of EGCG. Researchers have identified EGCG as the strongest polyphenol antioxidant, remarkable for preventing and halting cellular oxidative damage and other disease-fighting properties caused by harmful molecules in the body known as free radicals. Drinking a cup of green tea a few times a day will provide a rich source of antioxidants and other healthful plant compounds. Allow tea to steep for three to five minutes to bring out its healthful properties.
