All Natural – our tea has no additives, no caffeine, no additives, no colorings, no flavorings, no sugar, no chemicals, no herbicides, no pesticides and is 100% GMP free.
Sweet Tasting - most Jiaogulan has a medicinal and bitter after-taste, yuck! Our tea is slightly bitter and slightly sweet; subtle yet hardy/healthy/green. The longer is sits, the sweeter it gets. Leaves sink to the bottom of the cup; there is no need for tea bags.
Quality Leaf and NO Tea Bags - We only use the rolled leaves in our tea and no stems over 1mm. Tea bag products commonly use stems and lower grade fillers. Powdered tea leaf oxidizes quickly, reduces shelf life and deteriorates the effectiveness of a fresh, healthy product.
Effectiveness - our product has been tested for its strength. 1 gram (enough to make 1 cup) has 7.76mg gypenosides (active ingredient); the highest grade available in sweeter varieties of Jiaogulan.
