About Green Tea

If you don’t know how good for you Green Teas are… where have you been? Claims have been made that it will aide everything from blood pressure and weight loss to brain function and ugliness… okay I am kidding about the ugliness! But seriously, because Green tea is left to oxidise for a shorter amount of time than black tea it retains much, much more of its anti-oxidants and flavinols.. that’s a good thing by the way!  At Hettie’s we are not scientists or doctors – we are TEA LOVERS and have left the health claims aside and focussed on flavour… great Hettie’s loose leaf green tea flavour!   So as well as being super super good for you, Hettie’s loose leaf teas taste mighty fine too!  “Oh, I don’t like Green tea, it’s too bitter” – we hear this a lot and we have a magical remedy to fix this for you… 1) Buy Hettie’s Green Tea (any blend!)  2) brew at 80° – to see how to achieve this really simply click here for our little video.  And there you have it, a gorgeous cuppa of healthy and mind-blowingly tasty and refreshing Green Tea!
