Panel 2

Organic Green Tea blends

Bancha: Is an organic green tea and as with all tea – Green tea is from the camellia sinensis plant. The differences is just in the processing. A Chinese green tea is heated to stop the oxidization (turning brown) via pan frying rolling it as its heated.  Thus also adding to a rounded ball shaped leaf that you often see.  In Japan it is cut, steamed and flattened.

Location: The organic Bancha style green tea used in our blends is from the Zhejiang Province and made to Japanese specifications.

Benefits: Green tea is very rich in cancer fighting properties.  It contains numerous anti-oxidants and polyphenols and it has more of a medium level of caffeine.

Best Temperature: Bancha is best done at 90-95˚ for about 3-4 minutes. Within that range you can get multiple steepings out of the same 2-3g of tea.

Organic White Tea Blends

Pai Mu Tan: Is the organic White Tea used in our Chakra blends it is also known as White Peony or Bai Mu Dan. In the past White tea was so rare, it used to be reserved for only the Imperial courts, and it wasn’t exported until 1890’s.

Location: Pai Mu Tan is from the Fujian Prov. of China, and typically you see both a young bud or bud and 2 leaves.  White tea is considered the true tea as there are many ways to process a camellia sinensis leaf, the simplest is by far the White tea. 

From the top of the plant the young bud and or the top 2 leaves are plucked and then laid out in the sun to dry.  The heat of the sun reduces the leaves ability to oxidize and thus any ability to darken or to turn brown.   The end result is a tea leaf that is usually open and a bud that still has its ‘white’ furry coat on.

Benefits: Because it has so little processing and closer to its original form than other methods.  It is very high in anti-oxidants, lower in caffeine, it is lighter in taste than green tea, and more floral.     It does not require or even like a high temperature bath (like black tea) and will release its delicious essences and aromas readily in a short steeping. 

Steeping: White tea is best done at 80-85˚c for about 2-3 minutes. Within that range you can get multiple steepings out of the same 3g of tea
