Collection: Green Tea

The amazing Green Teas we sell

Here at English Bruw we pride ourselves on sourcing and selling the finest Green Tea. We have tasted and tested hundreds of teas in our time and we believe the selection to be superb. One of our favorite brands we sell is Revolution Tea. They use whole leaf teas and a unique pyramid infuser tea bag which allows the tea to steep correctly and fills each cup with amazing polyphenols and antioxidants. 

Our collection includes Organic Green Tea as well as lots of others which are flavoured with amazing real fruits like Acai and Peach and Mango. Our teas are all carefully taste-tested to ensure maximum health benefits, delicious flavour, and amazing quality. We are sure you will love them as much as we do so we invite you to buy a box or two or even try one of our little sample packs to experience this for yourself.

 

BENEFITS OF DRINKING GREEN TEA

Green Tea has a vast amount of benefits to health and well being. It's high in antioxidants which help to reduce inflammation and studies have shown that this tea's high-grade polyphenols actively help to reduce the bodies autoimmune response to ailments such as arthritis. The clever little plant camellia sinensis is what tea is made from and it is the green tea consumption that gives such a positive effect on our lives.

The best way to make green tea depends on your personal taste. Some people love to steep the tea to extract the maximum goodness but others dislike the taste of a heavily stewed tea. The Chinese have a saying "learn to eat bitter", this literally translates to if you can put up with the nasty taste then you will get the maximum benefits. The flavour for some is an acquired taste but as your palate and health improve you will begin to enjoy the taste even more. Luckily our delicious teas don't have any nasty bitter aftertaste and we recommend reusing the unique infuser tea bags again and again until the flavours start to dissipate.

This isn't to say Green Tea is bitter as it has different flavours for everyone. This type of tea has a grassy, almost vegetal flavour which is delightful but strange to some people when they first try it. Like all things it's only when you try them that you will discover if you like them. However no one can argue with the vast research into the health benefits of drinking this little beverage.

We recommend steeping your cup or mug for around 3-4 minutes but this is entirely down to you and how you like your tea to taste. Many people leave the tea in the entire time and want to extract as much goodness as possible.

One of the great things about the teas we sell here at English Bruw is the fact that they don't have the bitter aftertaste that many lesser drinks seem to give. This is because we buy and sell only the finest quality we can find. We only source whole leaf teas and none of the dust and nasties that are found in inferior beverages. The revolution full leaf tea bags are one of our finest discoveries.

A cup or two every day can give many health benefits. These are said to include helping the body to lose weight, lower cholesterol,and blood pressure, reduce tooth decay, and reduce the risk of many types of cancer. Whilst there is a huge amount of research still to do the evidence so far shows and amazing link between green tea and our overall health.

Whilst there are many different types of tea it is green and black tea that is the most researched and have the most health claims.

Here at English Bruw we are convinced of the long and short terms effects of drinking this type of tea and the wonderful ways that it helps with the symptoms of different cancers, as well as reducing high blood pressureTraditional Chinese green teas are often the most renowned for their health benefits but tea from anywhere is a wonderful drink.

 

Why our teas are different

The premium tea we use is made from whole leaf tea sourced from high elevation growing areas which are mostly on steep slopes. This is time-consuming and labour intensive but is the traditional way tea should be harvested. These full leaf teas provide maximum flavour and quality.

We use only the top two leaves and the unopened bud which are carefully and lovingly picked by hand and then gently processed to give the desired result. The "bud" isn't actually a flower, it's the young unopened leaf f the tea plant which is its freshest growth and has the most benefits for health.

The inferior teas which you can buy in supermarkets are harvested in lowland flat areas which are perfect for machine harvesting and costs savings. These machine picked and processed teas use the uppermost leaves and unopened buds and often contain many stalks, older leaves, and stems. They vary in quality and while some may be quite good and taste adequate they will never achieve the high standards set by premium teas.

Our pyramid shaped tea sachets are the next most important ingredient. because we use premium tea we want to to be put in the best possible bag, one that will enhance the flavours and allow the tea to majestically showcase the amazing flavours of the tea alongside the wonderful health benefits. These revolutionary tea sachets are made from a mesh which allows the water to flow through and reserve the health benefits without any nasty unnatural additives.

Who we buy our teas from

Here at English Bruw we are passionate about sourcing the best teas from around the world. This means we have to work really hard at the tasting, evaluating, choosing and selling our lovely teas. It all starts with sustainability for the planet and the workers who harvest the leaves. If a new tea does not pass this first basic test then we don't even bother to try them, no matter how nice the packaging may look!

Once we are happy with this we try and retry the tea, in a variety of ways to check it's quality, freshness, and flavour. We want our products to be amazing and so we have a strict taste policy and we refuse any teas that leave a nasty aftertaste.

The packaging is always important and whilst we realise that occasionally this may not be great for the environment we want the teas we sell to be as fresh as the day they were picked and so packaging is a must. That said, we also offer our different flavours in larger containers which are airtight so you can reduce your carbon footprint as well as securing your favorite tea.

We have chosen two different suppliers to launch our website with. Revolution Tea was our first choice as they matched the strict criteria we had and we simply adored their range. The packaging and different ways it is offered from individual sachets and little boxes to large airtight containers appealed to us. We love the single serving full leaf tea bags and how convenient they are for our clients.

Revolution tea has been around for a long time and whilst they are not necessarily a household name right now we hope to be a major part of their own tea revolution and be a part of making them well known in the United Kingdon and worldwide.

Tea Swan is our newest discovery and we will be selling their lovely teas in the near future. Once again they matched our strict policies and they also brought a different look and feel to our range. Chuck in some attractive packaging and sublime teas and we have a winner! The tea Swan range is smaller than the Revolution Tea range but the quality is superb and the flavours and range are completely different. This is one major reason why we choose them as our second partner.

So what will the future look like for English Bruw in terms of range and style? At this moment it's a delightful journey for us all but it's one we relish and are totally excited about.

We hope you enjoy browsing this website and find the selection as exciting as we do. We want to strive to improve your experience and welcome any feedback.

It's amazing how a little cup of tea can bring so much fun, goodness, and joy to people the world over!
