Black Teas

Black tea is a type of tea that is more oxidized than oolong, green and white teas. Black tea is generally stronger in flavor than the less oxidized teas.

Green Teas

Green tea is made from leaves that have undergone minimal oxidation during processing. Several varieties differ substantially due to growing conditions, production processing, and time of harvest.

Oolong Teas

Produced through withering the plant under the strong sun and oxidation before curling and twisting.

Pu'erh Teas

A variety of fermented and aged dark tea. Fermentation is a tea production style in which the tea leaves undergo microbial fermentation and oxidation after they are dried and rolled.

Herbal Infusions

These infusions are generally not related to the Camellia Sinensis plant, but rather to the Herbal infusions, also referred as tisane. Chamomile Flowers, Rosehip & Hibiscus and Pure Peppermint offer delicious, naturally caffeine-free infusions. Herbal teas are a delicious and easy way to increase your fluid intake and sneak in some extra nutrients.

Caffeine Free Teas

Even black or green teas that are labeled "decaffeinated" contain trace amounts of caffeine. Instead, drink a cup of herbal infusions, which contains no caffeine.

Power of Tea

More than 3,000 published studies exist that evaluate the role that tea and tea compounds, such as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), may play in various types of cancer. The research suggests that tea may help reduce cancer risk in a number of different ways.

  • Reducing free radical and DNA damage
  • Inhibiting uncontrolled cell growth (cell proliferation) by promoting programmed cell death (apoptosis)
  • Boosting the immune system to help fend off the development and promotion of cancer cells
