What is Green Tea?

Green tea has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years to treat everything from headaches to depression.

Like all teas, green tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant but is produced in a different way from other teas to provide its delicate and unique flavour.

The leaves of green tea are rich in antioxidants because of the way they are processed. Fresh leaves are steamed or heated gently in a wok and are not given the chance to ferment as with black tea which means the leaves stay green in colour. As green tea is loaded with antioxidants and many other nutrients, it can have beneficial effects on health.

In order to feel better, lose weight and lower the risk of chronic diseases make green tea a regular part of your life.

Abbey Tea offer you the choice of green tea including Jasmine Dragon Pearl, Dragon Well Long Jing and Imperial Green Snail Spring tea.

Our green teas are of the highest quality and have a refreshing delicate, gentle, sweet taste, making a very satisfying cup of tea.
