Autumn Harvests Have Finally Arrived! (Triple Offers to End 30 November)

"Green tea for spring, white tea for summer, oolong tea for autumn, while red/black tea for winter!"

Long-time readers of this newsletter would have remembered the "Balancing the Four Season" article I wrote back in the January 2010 newsletter, which explained why we should diversify our tea intake and drink more of the darker teas in the colder seasons.

In addition, readers have also asked:

"Does tea quality vary with harvesting season?"

Yes it does. In Amazing Green Tea Shop, we sell only white tea and green tea harvested in spring, as they contain the highest concentration of antioxidants and theanine - compounds that are responsible for the refreshing and relaxing effect of lightly oxidized tea.

Newsletter #59: The Secret of Green Tea (Offer To End 30 July)

What is the secret of green tea?

My tea friends always write and ask me for tea with LOTs of antioxidants. They reckon these antioxidants will give them lots of health benefits.

They heard green tea contains the highest concentration of antioxidants of any plant food. These antioxidants would keep free radicals at bay and perform healing at the deepest cellular level.

While this may be true, antioxidant is NOT the secret of green tea.

Newsletter #57: Confession of A Tea Seller (Triple Offers to End 28 February)

For a tea seller like me, the 2012/13 tea season is one to forget about.

You may not realize it , the 2008 financial crisis has a profound impact on the tea industry. The costs of tea escalated by at least 20% since then, which was then exacerbated by the collapse of the USD/Renminbi exchange by another 20%. Also, to add insults to injury, shipping costs rocketed in China.
