Green Tea (pronounced: lu cha) is one of the first beverages recorded in history. Over 4,000 years ago monks drank it to stay awake during their long hours of meditation. Today tea drinkers and health conscious consumers around the world are rediscovering the benefits of this revitalizing ancient drink. It is considered by many as one of the healthiest beverages on Earth. Uncle Lee's green tea (Camellia sinensis) begins as young tender leaf buds, plucked fresh at the height of potency and flavor. Each leaf is simply steamed, rolled and gently flash-dried to hold in the delicate flavor and aroma. Every batch is carefully, hand inspected and certified Kosher to ensure goodness and purity.
