Green tea, the typical tea of China and Japan, carries a history that spans over 4,000 years, offering moments of refreshment and vitality. Derived from the same leaves as black tea, green tea is picked at a younger stage, ensuring a fresher and lighter flavor profile. Our classic green tea blend strikes a delicate balance, featuring grassy notes and natural earthiness, making it an ideal mid-morning pick-me-up or a delightful afternoon refresher.
Green tea's significance extends beyond its delightful taste and aromas. It has become a symbol of positivity, embraced by cultures worldwide. In China, green tea embodies purity, wisdom, and good fortune, while in Japan, it takes center stage in mesmerizing tea ceremonies that epitomize harmony, respect, and gratitude. Offering a spiritual experience that encourages tranquility, mindfulness, and an appreciation for beauty in every sip.
Beyond its enchanting flavors, green tea offers an array of health benefits that can enhance your well-being. It serves as a delicious way to achieve the recommended daily fluid intake, providing 2-2.5 liters of hydration per day. As 99.5% water, green tea hydrates and refreshes your body, revitalizing your senses and keeping you focused throughout the day.
Moreover, the flavonoids found in green tea play a role in maintaining a healthy heart when consumed as part of a diet consistent with dietary guidelines. With approximately 150mg of flavonoids per cup, green tea surpasses even fresh orange juice, making it a delightful choice for promoting cardiovascular well-being.
Additionally, unsweetened green tea contains zero calories, making it an excellent choice for those aiming to maintain a healthy diet without added sugars. For a fresh twist, consider our flavored loose leaf tea options, infused with fruit or herbs to add new and vibrant flavors.
At The Tea House on Los Rios, we invite you to embrace the revitalizing power of green tea, making it a part of your daily routine!
