The base tea we use in this flavorful decaffeinated green tea is a decaf Sen Cha style green tea that was grown and produced in China's Hunan Province. The exceptional leaf is decaffeinated using a patented Canadian Chemical Free CO2 process. During the process, naturally occurring CO2 is circulated under high pressure to extract caffeine. Not only is this process completely chemical free and kind to the environment, it leaves none of the chemical flavor residue associated with chemically decaffeinated teas. The light, fresh taste that is the result makes this tea a natural for blending with dried fruits and herbs, in this case we use naturally dried fresh ginger and lemon zest and blended them with organic lemongrass.The use of ginger in Traditional Chinese Medicine dates back at least 2,500 years. It has been valued as especially as an effective digestive aid and nausea remedy. Human studies document its effectiveness in morning sickness, chemotherapy induced nausea, post-op nausea and motion sickness. Ginger is an anti-inflammatory and is valued as an aid in treating arthritis and rheumatic complaints. Lemon has historically been used in curing ills like indigestion, bad breath and sore throats. It is also an effective means of cleansing the overloaded digestive system.
