Why White Tea?
People in the Western World are familiar with oolong and black teas, coming from oxidized leaves of the Camelia sinensis plant. Less oxidized is the prized Green Tea, which we are now beginning to invite into our homes and bodies. The least oxidized of all, with a different polyphenolic profile, is the rare White Tea from the Fujian Province of China. New research indicates that the array of healing nutrients in White Tea is even more health-promoting than its Camellia cousins. We deeply respect the preventative power of both Green and White Teas, and we are proud to unite these family members in a reunion of tea nutrients.
Why is "Green & White Tea" NOT Caffeine Free?
Because green and white tea leaves are not caffeine free, and removing the caffeine is "fixing what isn't broken." For thousand of years, billions of people have been consuming many cups of green and white tea each day. This time-honored practice has contributed to longevity and vigor, and we prefer to deliver the herbs as Nature has delivered them to us. Caffeine is controversial: if you don't want caffeine, this product is not for you. If you want the fully activity of the beneficial green and white tea polyphenols, this product is for you- for there is scientific evidence that removing the caffeine inactives some of the most important properties of the tea polyphenols. There is a perfection of balance in tea: the alertness and thermogenesis stimulated by caffeine is balanced by the restfulness induced by theanine. Nature knows what She is doing - enjoy!
Five Thousand Years and Billions of Cups Later
Tea has been a medical treasure for at least five thousand years. In 2737 B.C., a Chinese medical text exalted tea as a health tonic, and in 780 A.D. the Chinese tea master Lu Yu explained that tea cured aches, pains, and depression.* In 1211, Eisai Myo-an, the founder of Zen Buddhism, praised tea as an elixir to promote good health and long life.* By the end of the 20th century, scientists identified hundreds of beneficial phytonutrients within the tea leaf that were shown to dramatically enhance immune and cardiovascular functioning and prolong healthy life.* In the 1990's researchers discovered the precise extraction temperature for maximum delivery of tea's protective benefits. New Chapter takes the world's finest certified organic white and green teas, extracts them at the perfect temperature, and delivers in concentrated form their full range of unique polyphenols for all to enjoy.*
What to expect from your "Green & White Tea"
In 2001, the World Health Organization determined that men and women of Japan enjoyed the longest "Healthy Life Expectancy" in the world. Scientists have long associated this longevity with, in part, the Japanese people's regular consumption (often over 10 cups a day) of tea. Researchers at the Saitama Cancer Center Research Institute reported in 2000 that people who drank more than ten cups of tea a day experienced significantly better heart and immune system health than those who drank under 3 cups a day. Green and white teas are known to contain the highest concentration of health-promoting antioxidants. New Chapter has carefully selected the purest organically grown green and white tea leaves for the production of our tea extract. With Green and White Tea, you're well on your way!
