All these years we have been talking about the many benefits of green tea. On the other hand, the mechanisms of how it actually work inside the human body are still an area of research. Fortunately, modern research is revealing two additional pathways green tea benefits are manifesting:

1. Directly influencing how genetics work

2. Promoting the growth of beneficial gut bacteria

Issue #102: Green Tea 2020 Season Has Arrived!

- As you might know, some of our best teas (Longjing, Anji, Biluochan etc) are produced in the prosperous provinces of Zhejiang and Jiangsu. Tea production has unfortunately reduced sharply due to the weather. In the case of HQ's tea garden in Shifeng Mountain, West Lake, it was down as much as one-third, which is pretty bad.

You see, these premium Chinese tea buds are not machine harvested. Laborers travelled from the poorer northern provinces to help with the tea picking season. It is a costly exercise. Labour cost has risen sharply in China in recent years and you need to pay for the transport, food and lodging. Unfortunately weather didn't cooperate and turned cold towards the end of the picking window. In any case, we have somehow managed to maintain our prices this year. Long term customers will know we haven't hiked prices for a while now. Please take advantage while it lasts.

Issue #98: Green Tea Season 2019 Has Arrived - and it's Good!

The 2019 green tea season is upon us and yes - it is goooood. Temperature has remained low during early spring, allowing the tea buds to grow slowly and picked off in an orderly fashion.

It is certainly not in the same league as the 2016 ("Best in Five Years!") or 2015 ("One of the Best"), but certainly better than 2017 ("Heavy Rainfall") and 2018 ("Warming up too quickly").
