    The Republic of Tea - Honeydew Melon 100% White Tea - 50 Tea Bags

    The Republic of Tea Honeydew Melon White Tea contains rare white tea buds from China's Fujian province. Sweet yet sophisticated, the honeydew was prized by ancient Egyptians thousands of years ago for its sweet, succulent flavor and cooling, hydrating properties. The refreshing flavor of perfectly ripe melon lends itself to the soft, sweet notes of this rare 100% White Tea. Also makes a great iced tea.

    Magnificent and Rare
    Once reserved for the cups of emperors and nobility, authentic 100% White Tea only grows in the magnificent high mountain region of China's Fujian province. The tender white downy buds are painstakingly hand-plucked, only two days of the year, right before the leaf opens. So small is the yield, so high is the demand, that it remains one of the worlds's most expensive and rare teas.

    The Republic of Tea has procured this season's harvest to offer 100% White Tea in their signature round, unbleached tea bags. They are honored to offer you this pure, delicate brew with its subtle, sweet, lingering finish.

    White tea is the most minimally processed of all tea varietals. Modern research shows that white tea retains the highest level of disease preventative antioxidants known as polyphenols. Discover tea in its most natural state... here's to your health.

    What are the Health Benefits of Tea?
    The people of The Republic of Tea take great delight in the knowledge that tea drinking brings about more than a pleasurable experience. For centuries, tea has been associated with good health. Now more than ever, scientific research supports that connection.

    Studies have found that tea is rich in the plant substances known as flavonoids. These naturally occurring compounds can function as powerful antioxidants that can help neutralize the free radicals known to damage cells and lead to diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Black, green, and oolong teas may all help protect against numerous types of cancers. In addition, by inhibiting the absorption of cholesterol in the digestive tract, tea prevents the formation of unwanted clots which may cause a heart attack or stroke. And all teas contribute vitamins A, C and E to our diets.

    Green tea is especially health-promoting. With more than 30 polyphenols it affects the human system in the most positive of ways—helping us lose weight, lower cholesterol and control blood sugar. A subgroup of polyphenols, called catechins, is abundant in green tea. One catechin in particular, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg), is found only in green tea. It is one of the most potent antioxidants yet discovered. Because of this and so many other advantages inherent in green tea, promising evidence shows that regularly drinking green tea appears useful in helping fight breast, prostate and other cancers.

    About weight loss: Recent research focuses on green tea’s impact on body composition, particularly the visceral fat implicated in heart disease. In one study, habitual tea drinkers (most of whom drank green or 100% White Tea) had almost 20 percent less body fat than those who drank other beverages. While green tea is one of the healthiest beverages you can sip, 100% White Tea is even more so. Research shows that 100% White Tea retains the highest level of polyphenols of all teas. In addition to many other attributes, tea can calm the mind, relieve stress, and is reported to aid digestion. Good for the spirit, good for the body.

    Tea and Caffeine
    Caffeine occurs naturally in tea. A mild stimulant, it accounts for tea’s reputation as a beverage that clears the mind and lifts the spirit. On average, a six-ounce cup of black tea has about 50 milligrams of caffeine—less than half the amount in a cup of brewed coffee. The smaller the leaf, the stronger the extraction of caffeine. Using comparable amounts and steeping times, a tea bag filled with cut leaves will release more caffeine per cup than full-leaf tea.

    The more oxidized the tea – as in black tea – the greater its caffeine content. Green tea and 100% White Tea, which are not oxidized, have less caffeine per cup than black tea. In between we have oolong tea, which is semi-oxidized and has about half as much caffeine as black tea. Caffeine content varies with manufacturing and growing variances as well as brewing conditions and time. Values are approximations.

    Safety Testing
    In a world of uncertainty, safety and testing are of utmost importance. At The Republic of Tea, the integrity of their entire product line begins with the source.

    Tea Safety
    The Republic of Tea purchases only the highest quality tea grown at the premier tea gardens of the world. In each location, they have established long-term supply partnerships. These premium teas are naturally processed—that is, transformed from Camellia sinensis to black, oolong, green or 100% white tea—in the most time-honored fashion. No foreign materials or additives are ever introduced. All teas are routinely tested for every known pesticide residues and other matter as well. While all of our teas undergo stringent quality assurance processes at the garden level before they are shipped, they also test each shipment again upon arrival at their packaging facility.

    Good Will and Social Responsibility
    The Republic of Tea embraces the ancient Chinese philosophy of Ta shun – the Great Harmony. Ta shun is alive when people naturally care about the world and depend on one another for the well-being of the whole. It manifests itself in collective concern and the aspiration to seek opportunities, initiatives and actions that will better the conditions of both humans and the planet. In short, to provide good works, render goodwill. The Republic of Tea is honored to render goodwill by developing teas and tea-inspired items to support organizations that make a difference in the world. The Republic of Tea is also a committed member of the international Ethical Tea Partnership.

    I am absolutely addicted to this tea. I have tried almost all their flavors, and the honeydew melon is one of my favorites. Light, refreshing, with the lovely pick-me-up of white tea and no jittery caffeine rush.

    I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!
