From Our Reading and/or Experience...
- Green Tea has historically been one of the top 3 best selling herbs in the world.
- Many types of Green Tea come from the same plant: Camellia Sinensis. The differences in green tea relate to the manufacturer's tea preparation process.
- We use it often in tea combinations to improve energy levels and overall health. It mixes very well with other herbs, such as peppermint or chamomile. However, many prefer it alone.
- 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 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.
