Brew with water at 75 to 80 degrees and brew for 2 to 3 minutes, be careful not to over infuse
Green Tea Pyramid Tea Bags combine the latest technology of the industry with the refreshing flavour of Green Tea. Pyramid Tea Bags have recently taken the world by storm. They allow for up to 50% extra space in the bag for the Tea leaves to infuse. This ultimately creates a heartier cuppa' well suited to those who enjoy the taste of Green Tea at its fullest.
Pyramid Tea Bags have existed since 1997. However, they are only now increasing in popularity. It seems more than likely that they will become the future. And rightfully so. Our Green Tea Pyramid Tea Bags showcase quality and consistency with every sip. We pack each one fresh to order here in our Pluckley-based factory, nestled away within the beautiful Kentish countryside.
About Green Tea
Did you know that Green Tea was potentially the product of an accident? This is according to an ancient Chinese tale from 2737 BCE. The story goes that a Chinese Emperor and sage named Shennong one day fell asleep under an unknown tree. He had a cup of boiling water by his side, and when he awoke, found leaves from the tree above floating on its surface.
The leaves began to infuse with the water, which piqued the interest of Shennong. He decided to try the strange infusion, which of course turned out to be Tea. He fell in love with the mesmerising beverage almost immediately. And who could blame him?
Today, Green Tea is the second most consumed Tea after Black Tea. It comes from the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant like all other so-called 'real' Teas. The difference between each one occurs in the factory. Green Tea, for example, is promptly pan-fired or steamed after withering and a relatively short oxidation period. This keeps the leaf fresh and grassy when brewed. It is also the reason that Green Tea has large quantities of beneficial antioxidants.

Health Benefits of Green Tea Pyramid Tea Bags
One particularly special antioxidant found in Green Tea, Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), can improve daily life in myriad ways. This, indeed, has the backing of much of modern science. According to research, EGCG can combat free radicals in the body.
These are the product of natural, though harmful, oxidation. By slowing down the process of oxidation by combating free radicals, EGCG can reduce the risks of many chronic conditions. This includes type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and, potentially (pending further studies), cancer.
