As with all teas, it is recommended to choose an organic tea since the tea leaves are not washed during the fermentation process. The AB label rewards plantations that respect the environment and produce tea without pesticides. This guarantees you a healthy drink. You can enjoy all the benefits of tea without any risk to your health.

How to recognize a high quality Chinese tea?

Chinese teas are the most sold in the world. China produces 1,886,253 tons of tea per year, so it is difficult to sort out all the products available. To recognize a good Chinese tea, check its origin and prefer an organic tea. Loose tea has beautiful leaves and guarantees a much better preservation than tea bags. The freshness of the tea is also an essential element of its quality. Prefer teas from specialized brands and absolutely avoid supermarket products.
