Green Tea (pronounced: lu cha) is one of the first beverages recorded in history. Over 4,000 years ago monks drank it to stay awake during their long hours of meditation. Today tea drinkers and health conscious consumers around the world are rediscovering the benefits of this revitalizing ancient drink. It is considered by many as one of the healthiest beverages on Earth. Uncle Lee's green tea (Camellia sinensis) begins as young tender leaf buds, plucked fresh at the height of potency and flavor. Each leaf is simply steamed, rolled and gently flash-dried to hold in the delicate flavor and aroma. Every batch is carefully, hand inspected to ensure goodness and purity.
Green tea is cultivated in farms throughout the world, but mainland China is still known to this day as the region where some of the highest quality green teas in the world are grown. The varying taste of green tea is a reflection of many factors: soil, altitude, weather and farming methods. Green tea is a rich source of plant antioxidants. Studies have suggested that daily consumption of green tea may reduce the risk of certain types of cancer including stomach and throat. Green tea contains Vitamin C - the average amount in two small cups of brewed tea is nearly equal to that in a cup of orange juice. Green tea also has antibacterial properties which was discovered by the ancient Chinese who used it to purify their drinking water.
