Revolution Tea's premium organic green teas are treated with a high standard of care throughout the entire harvesting process to prevent the effects of over-oxidation. The over-oxidation of green tea causes noticeable effects to its flavor, intensity, and delicateness. To prevent our organic green teas from becoming strong and bitter, we developed an intensive process to produce the perfect bag of green tea. This process begins with steaming the leaves, then pan frying or rolling the leaves, and finally the leaves are dried to prevent any further oxidation. This process results in a clean, refreshing, mildly astringent, and highly enjoyable final product.
Whether steeped alone or accompanied by other fine herbs or fruit pieces, our green teas are perfect for enthusiasts and non-tea drinkers alike. According to John Weisburger, PhD, senior researcher at the Institute for Cancer Prevention, the detoxifying effect of antioxidants found to occur naturally in organic green tea protects cells from free radicals, the damage that can lead to blood clot formation, atherosclerosis, and cancer; he recommends drinking 6 to 10 cups per day. If you're not a warm tea drinker, our Açaí Green Tea is the perfect candidate for a subtly sweet iced tea. Our classic Organic Green Tea pairs very nicely with a teaspoon of manuka honey for added antiviral and antibacterial properties.
