 Our Emerald Lily green tea is harvested from old-growth trees in China's Yunnan province, and boasts a fresh, brisk flavor with hints of wild flowers. Compared with other green teas, this rare brew offers more of the polyphenol antioxidants that make tea a healthful beverage. 

Essential nutrients
Tea is a source of carotene, most B vitamins, vitamin C, manganese, and potassium.

Health benefits
Tea has been considered a healthful beverage throughout history, and modern research backs its reputation. Results of cell, animal, epidemiological, and clinical studies indicate that tea may offer a variety of cardiovascular, stress, immunity, digestive and dental benefits.

Many of tea's health effects are believed to stem from the high levels of powerfully antioxidant catechin-class polyphenol compounds in tea. (White tea contains the highest levels of antioxidants, followed by green tea and black tea.) 

These compounds belong to the same family of healthful antioxidants found in red wine and dark chocolate (i.e., flavon-3-ols), which, in test tube experiments, exhibit 20 to 30 times the antioxidant capacities of vitamins C and E.

The longer fermentation that black teas undergo converts 70 to 90 percent of their catechins to related compounds called theaflavins, which are generally weaker antioxidants, but may produce even stronger beneficial effects in certain health contexts.

In moderation caffeine can be a benefit—stimulating the metabolism and increasing brain function and alertness. However, overconsumption of coffee and caffeinated colas can lead people to caffeine overload.

The typical six-ounce cup of coffee contains 125-185 mg of caffeine, while there are about 45-60 mg in black tea, 15-20 mg in a cup of green tea, and 35-45 milligrams in a cup of white tea.

(Note: caffeine levels can be significantly greater or lower than outlined here, depending upon the type of tea and how it is prepared.)

Steeping Guidelines - Emerald Lily Green Tea

1. Start with your favorite spring or filtered water. Use water well below boiling temperature (180°F). 
2. Use 1 teaspoon for a 6 oz serving. Steep for 2-3 minutes.

• Remove the leaves when ready, relying on taste, not color. 
• Re-steep to make another cup! Use a large enough strainer basket to allow the leaves to open and release their flavor. 
• Play with the amount of tea, the water temperature and steeping time. Get to know the tea.
