The Tea of Life

by Rebekah (Pearl) Anast

May 2005

I've rediscovered Green Tea and a wealth of information about its health benefits, particulars of its preparation, and the various qualities available.

I once met a couple that cut fine opals for a living. They were old hippies who lived in a junky trailer on the edge of a national forest out in the boonies. Twice a year they flew to China to buy opals and meet with Chinese businessmen who made gem-cutting equipment for them. When I was a newly married bride, my husband took me out to their property to meet them; he had a habit of making odd acquaintances. We sat in the smoke-filled living room of their rundown trailer and listened as they told wild stories and showed us several hundred thousand dollars worth of fine opal beads that they had been working on. The wife asked me if I'd like something to drink, and I hesitated, expecting her to open the fridge and toss me a beer. From behind the Formica countertop, she lifted a beautiful china pot and proceeded to make tea. Ten minutes later, she handed me a tiny china cup with steaming-hot Jasmine Green Tea. I had never tasted anything so fine in my whole life. Four years have passed since then, and I still have not succeeded in finding tea like that.

A few months ago I began to search the internet for detox and weight-loss herbs, and rediscovered Green Tea. As I began to search, I found a wealth of information about the health benefits of Green Tea, the particulars of its preparation, and the various qualities available. The overwhelmingly dominant characteristic of Green Tea is its health benefit.

My husband and I both love Jasmine Tea (Green Tea scented with Jasmine flowers), so we ordered the cheapest Jasmine Green Tea in bulk that we could find. It was well worth drinking, but clearly not the stuff of sweet memories. I cannot tell whether there is a difference in health benefits among the various qualities of Green Teas, but I gladly pay extra for the flavor alone.

So, not only is Green Tea a drink of refinement and beauty, it is a drink of health. You can practically name just about any disease, immune system malfunction, and mystery symptom, and the answer would be (at least in part): "Drink Green Tea." There is far too much information for me to list.

How do you drink it?
Any way you like. My mom brews it in a coffee pot every morning. She also brews Peppermint (separately) and Chamomile (separately) and regular Black Tea. For a morning drink, the peppermint tea can be mixed with the Green Tea for a peppy, refreshing drink. For dinnertime, you might drink hot Jasmine Green Tea with a little honey, and for a wind-down evening tea, you can add relaxing Chamomile. We drink most of ours chilled.

Many types of Green Tea come from the same plant: Camellia Sinensis. The different types of tea (e.g. Green Tea, Pouchong Tea, Oolong Tea, Black Tea) are the result of differences in the manufacturer's tea preparation process, and not due to different types of tea plants. Non-fermented and very lightly-fermented (less than 10%) tea is called Green Tea. Green Tea has a distinct flavor, but readily absorbs or takes on whatever flavor it is mixed with.

I simply fill a wire-mesh strainer with Green Tea leaves and pour hot water over them, allowing the tea to brew for 3-5 minutes before lifting out the strainer. After it cools, I put it into the fridge to chill. If you brew Green Tea too long, or too strong, it becomes bitter. Rather than becoming overzealous and turn the family against the taste of strong Green Tea, it is better to keep it light and pleasant so they will drink it all day long. I even mix it with milk for my toddler's bottle.

The mix called Rise and Shine Tea that includes Green Tea. They also sell Green Tea, Chamomile, and Peppermint separately if you would like to make your own mix. We (a family of five) drink 1-2 pounds of dried Jasmine Green Tea a month, mostly as an iced tea for dinner and afternoon.


From Our Reading and/or Experience...

  • Green Tea has historically been one of the top 3 best selling herbs in the world.
  • We use it often in tea combinations to improve energy levels and overall health. It mixes very well with other herbs, but many prefer it alone.
  • Pomegranate Flavored Green Tea should not be steeped for long as it renders its properties rather quickly. It also tends to get bitter if brewed too long.
  • It can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), children and animals.
  • It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
  • As is the case with most herbs, Green Tea should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place.

Pomegranate Green Tea tastes FABULOUS and is, without a doubt, my favorite tea. I prefer it chilled but tastes good when served hot as well.
Thank you BHS for offering such a tasty tea!!!

Pomegranate flavoring?
by Dana on Jan 12, 2014

I notice a lot of teas have "flavoring" out there. Is this one with real pomegranate or some sort of chemical flavoring? I'm trying to stay away from chemical flavorings.

    Re: Pomegranate flavoring?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 13, 2014

    Hello,
    The flavoring comes from the flowers of the pomegranate plant. Also, there is a completely natural Pomegranate extract that is also mixed with the green tea and pomegranate leaves to give it extra flavor. Thanks!

Iced Tea

How would you recommend brewing for iced tea? I have heard that green tea becomes bitter when chilled. Thanks!

    Hello!
    You simply fill a wire-mesh strainer with Green Tea leaves and pour hot water over them, allowing the tea to brew for 3-5 minutes before lifting out the strainer. After it cools, I put it into the fridge to chill. If you brew Green Tea too long, or too strong, it becomes bitter. Thanks!

Tea origin
by Manuela on Feb 7, 2013

My in-laws love green tea and they live in Germany. would you give away where from Germany you are getting this tea from or is that not possible? I would order it from you for them but it would make more sense to get it themselves (because of the shipping).

Blessings,

Manuela

    Sorry, but we do not give out our suppliers' information! You might be able to find places to buy from in Germany if you do a Google search though!

Family favorite
by Cindi S. on Jan 28, 2011

We just tried your Pomegranate Green Tea and it's wonderful. Everyone in the family loved it! We mixed a little of your peppermint tea with it and enjoyed it over ice. It's so pretty too and it smells great! We're putting an order in for four more bags - I can tell this is going to be a family favorite!

Thanks so much for putting it all together - we appreciate your business and ministry!

I was so excited when my mom first told me about your site. I have been looking to find "natural ways" to take my vitamins and am looking forward to using some of the herbs my mom has already purchased. Oh, I also love that there are videos so that I am not "winging it" when it comes to what I am supposed to mix. You guys are freakin awesome!!
