Now you can enjoy the benefits of ginkgo, green tea and Chinese herbs without the caffeine! Our green tea is naturally decaffeinated using a carbon dioxide process that maintains green tea's beneficial antioxidants. Ginkgo biloba is a unique tree species with no close living relatives. It is a living fossil. Living fossil species all have survived major extinction events. The ginkgo species is estimated to be 270 million years old. Ginkgos are long-lived, with some trees said to be more than 2,500 years old. Ginkgo has been cultivated in China for ages. This tea is made from revered Chinese herbs including gingko, ginseng, eleuthero, astragalus, poria, fo-ti and licorice root. Ginseng contains ginsenosides and eleuthero (commonly called "Siberian ginseng") contains eleutherosides, similar in properties to ginsenosides. Chinese herbalists considered them to be healthy herbs that lift the spirits (chi). Experts recommend drinking three or more cups of green tea a day. Drink this delicious tea anytime of day, hot or iced, as is, or try adding lemon and your favorite sweetener.
Triple Leaf Tea's Ancient Chinese Herbs & Teas
Traditional Chinese herbology began in approximately 2500 B.C. Recently, here in the West, people have discovered the value of this ancient system. Tea drinkers are able to enjoy a wider variety of Chinese herbs and teas that rarely were used in the West until now. The Chinese system of herbology has been recorded in ancient texts, which are studied and employed even today. This time tested knowledge has been passed on from generation to generation over the centuries.
Triple Leaf Tea comes from such a tradition. It is made in the U.S.A. by a Chinese American family-owned business. The company owner can remember stories of his own grandfather selling herbs and teas in his village in China. Today, these traditional Chinese herbs and teas are available to you. We wish you harmony and health.
