Blending eastern and western traditions, naturally kosher hot or iced high in antioxidants low in caffeine green tea (pronounced: lu cha) is one of the first beverages recorded in history. Over 4,000 years ago monks drank it to stay awake during their long hours of meditation. Today tea drinkers and health conscious consumers around the world are rediscovering the benefits of this revitalizing ancient drink. Our green tea (camellia sinensis) begins as young tender leaf buds, plucked fresh at the height of potency and flavor. Each leaf is simply steamed, rolled and gently flash-dried to hold in the delicate flavor and aroma. Every batch is carefully, hand inspected and certified kosher to ensure goodness and purity. When it comes to green teas no one knows better than uncle lee's. We've been creating fine teas for over 50 years, combining traditional methods from ancient china with the western technology of today.
