Certified organic, Dragon Herbs premium Organic Green Tea comes from the misty and mystical Wuyi Mountains of Fujian Province, China. Following the Five Elements theory, only early spring harvest is used to ensure a stronger WOOD elemental energy that is said to benefit the Liver functions and creativity. The most tender tea leaves and buds are hand-picked to minimize bruising. Green tea is minimally processed. The enzymes that cause oxidation and fermentation are naturally de-activated, thus preserving the polyphenols and retaining the strong antioxidant activity. Cooling (Yin) and detoxifying, our Organic Green Tea contains a very high content of antioxidants (catechins) second only to White tea among all teas.
Flavor: Full bodied flavor of autumn foliage that is lightly sweet with roasted overtones and a dry finish
Directions: Add the amount of botanicals per a recipe, as desired, or as directed by a health practitioner. The proper way of extracting botanicals depends on parts used. Flowers, fruits and leaves can usually be steeped or decocted (boiling over fire) while stems, barks and roots typically require decocting.
In a Desktop Botanical Garden™ Glass Tea & Elixir Maker, add 1 part botanical(s) and 5-8 parts water, steep or decoct for 5-20 minutes. You can boil water directly in the Elixir Maker. Repeat this process for 2nd or 3rd extraction until all active constituents have been extracted.
