Rich in antioxidants and low in caffeine, green tea could possibly be the perfect beverage. Known for centuries for its healing properties, green tea is just what the doctor ordered.

Light and refreshing green tea infused with a hint of fruit and floral fragrances make these premium green teas the perfect tea iced or hot. Natural flavors of apple, jasmine, or blueberry enhance the taste of our distinctive, high-quality China green tea.

How to prepare green teas

Green teas are brewed at a lower temperature so as not to damage the more delicate green leaf of this varietal. For this reason, green teas may be hot- or cold-brewed. 

Steeping instructions

Hot tea Heat water to 175°F. Use 1 tsp. of green tea for every 8 oz. of water. Allow to steep for 4 – 5 minutes or to desired taste.

Cold tea Heat water to 175°F. Use 2 tsp. of green tea for every 8 oz. of water. Allow to steep for 4 – 5 minutes, then pour over ice.
Alternative method: Using the same ratio of tea and water, steep in refrigerator overnight. Strain and serve.

Suggestions

Sweeten green tea with pure wildflower honey.

Herbal Cows
