Here goes the blog post.

I am not much of a great “tea lover” but eventually, started having tea when I started with my first job. And then it was unavoidable to not to have a cup of tea daily. A sip of this hot drink was like it was sharing my work related pressure and suddenly I would feel rejuvenated. Thus, started my journey to a regular tea drinker and along with it started some acidity related problems. And one day my doctor abstained me from drinking any more tea. Now, I had to find a substitute and then my mother suggested me to have Green tea. She told me innumerable benefits of consuming it regularly. Green tea has an abundance of antioxidants and is helpful in digestion, thus reducing some extra accumulated stubborn fat.

Then I was convinced to opt for green tea after doing a detailed research about its positive outcomes. I bought my first packet of green tea of a well known brand but was not pleased by its sour taste. I never drank it again until I came across TE-A-ME green teas.

TE-A-ME teas taste is too good. I got 3 flavours Natural Green tea, Honey Lemon green tea, Tulsi green tea. All of them are so good in taste that I’m love with them. Now I consume them every day.

Although we can add these added ingredients to simple green tea for additional benefits, but TE-A-ME has introduced different flavours to enable its users to consume tea with convenience.

All I can say is “Te Amo” to “TE-A-ME”. It is just like what their tagline says “It’s better, not bitter”.

My Rating: 5/5

Packaging: Superb. Each tea bag is enclosed in a sealed pack. Which ensures locking the natural aroma of rest of the tea bags, even after opening the outer pack.

Availability: Easily available on Amazon.in on good discount. Order yours now! And feel the difference.

Where One can Buy Green Tea?


Shalu! I am planning to start having green tea daily.
That’s good. It is full of goodness you know.
Yes. But not sure yet where to get buy green tea.
Why? Does that matter?

Absolutely!

Yes. Green tea is fantastic for the health; but taking care while getting your green tea is equally important. Otherwise, there could be consequences.

Pesticides – Usage of pesticide is common in tea plantation. It is equally common finding the traces of such chemicals in your cuppa if proper care is not taken while processing. So, always be particular about sources of your green tea. Organic is definitely better. Don’t just settle for anyone claiming organic. Check their certificate. Otherwise, you can go for companies sourcing their green tea for trusted sources.

Whole leaf – Loose green tea leaves are far better and richer in quality compared to your regular green tea bags as you get more whole leaves while buying loose teas. However, we all know tea bags are convenient to store and easier for making your cup of green tea. So, you don’t need to ditch green tea bags when and where it is needed. Just take care of the brand and sources of raw leaves.

Freshness – This is another important thing to look out for; date of plucking. Generally, on retail packages we get date of packing and not the date of actual plucking. So, be careful about that. The fresher your green tea leaves the better it is.

Having said all, how could you actually buy a pack of green tea that fits all these criteria? After all, there is not point in destroying your mental composure for a cup of good green tea!

Don’t worry! We have few check list that you can trust while buying green tea.

  1. Don’t rely too much on your grocery store guy for selection of your green tea.
  2. Bulk tea makers or supermarket green tea brands are not reliable for good quality green tea. They are in volume business and not after nitty-gritty of quality. Take no offence please!
  3. You can rely on specialized green tea brands as it is their forte. Though, they are mostly available online.
  4. Always check background of the brand and the company.
  5. Try tasting multiple brands before zeroing on any one as your trusted choice of green tea.

In case you are interested, TE-A-ME teas fits all the above check. They take meticulous care in every aspect of green tea before packing; and after packing too. And TE-A-ME green teas are available in multiple naturally blended flavours for your all sorts of green tea requirements. Give it a try.
