The practice of drinking Green Tea (Camellia sinensis) was brought to Japan by monks returning from their studies at the great Zen monasteries of 12th century China. For them, tea functioned as an aid to meditation, as a health aid, and as a tool to propagate Zen. As the years went by, tea and the reason for drinking it changed, but it never went out of fashion. Today, Green Tea is one of the three major non-alcoholic beverages in the world. Green Tea is a typical non-fermented tea that is enjoyed by many and is immensely popular in Japan. It is utilized as both a daily beverage and as a healthful drink. Green Tea contains a rich natural source of polyphenols and bioflavonoids. Recent studies have identified the valuable active constituents of Green Tea and continue to review its historical uses.
The best way to make a good cup of tea is by the infusion method. Place one tea bag in a cup and add no more than 6 oz of boiling water. Let steep for 3 minutes. Press the bag before removing to enhance flavor.
Add honey to sweeten.

Great green tea taste.
Pretty good, but not as good as Japanese brands I've tasted

Like all Alvita teas I've ordered, these were fragrent and fresh, and efficiently packed together. But this chinese green is just a little rich and dark for me...not bitter, not bad, quite decent. But I prefer the cleaner/lighter varieties that generally come from Japan. Will probably try the ito-en bags I can get at the warehouse, next...
Gives you a feeling of overall well being.

I love all herbal teas. This one I had to get use to, but feel stronger, healthier and just an all around feeling of well being.
