About Our Tea - Nature provides the subtle taste of green tea. Cherished in Asia for generations, the health benefits of green tea are only now drawing attention although the first book describing the health benefits of tea was written in 1191 by the famous Zen priest Eisai (1141-1215).
The Kissa Yojoki (how to stay healthy by drinking tea) was a two volume set and its first sentence states, “Tea is the ultimate mental and medical remedy and has the ability to make one’s life more full and complete.” It describes how drinking tea can have a positive effect on the five vital organs, especially the heart.
