Here are our top five tea picks for wellness during the cold and flu season because they contain high levels of antioxidants and herbs that promote vitality and overall improve your immunity.

 

1)  White Eagle Long Life Green Tea

White Eagle long life green tea may not grant immortality, however, the health benefits from removing oxidative stress is unsurpassed.

 

2) Mim Estate Black Tea

Mim Estate is in the Darjeeling region of northern India. The genus of the Darjeeling tea bush is the Chinese Jat which gives it the distinctive muscatel character. This is a high mountain grown tea (> 6,800 feet) so the air is relatively cool making the plants grow slowly.  The cooler air limits yield but dramatically improves quality.  Quality peaks during the "second flush," which begins at the end of May and runs through the end of June.  During this time Darjeeling's are incomparable to any other tea in the world.  Due to the superb taste and limited production, "second flush" Darjeeling's are often more expensive.  Independent studies have shown this tea contains an abundance of polyphenols with concentrations of 13% by dry weight.  Mim Estate black tea has higher antioxidants than most green teas.  Finally a black tea with all the benefits of a green tea!
