Pukka Herbs Launches Eagerly Awaited Range of Organic Fairtrade Green Teas

London, United Kingdom, December 09, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Pukka Herbs, the organic herbal expert dedicated to helping people lead a healthy, balanced life, is launching a range of healthy green teas to complement its existing herbal tea range. These fine, whole leaf teas have been created by Pukka’s herbal director, Sebastian Pole, using premium, 100 per cent organic, Fairtrade ingredients.

Green tea, the grandfather of all tea, originated in China around 5,000 years ago. Having spread to Japan it became highly appreciated in Buddhism, with monks using it to help concentrate the mind. It is rich in protective antioxidants which are known to have a positive effect on the immune system, help regulate weight and maintain good health.

Sebastian explains: “We set out to create a superior tasting smooth green tea using some of the finest organic whole leaves, hand picked by select Fairtrade growers around the world. The whole leaf is gently dried to retain antioxidants and a wonderfully delicate flavour. The result is a calming drink with none of the harshness sometimes associated with green tea.”

Appealing to all tastes, Pukka Herbs has introduced three flavoursome varieties to its range. The new teas are 100 per cent organic and Fairtrade certified from growers in Vietnam, China and India, with whom Pukka Herbs is engaged in a number of community projects. Each stylish box contains 20 tea bags, individually wrapped to maintain freshness.

Green Tea – smooth and natural tasting, made from the finest organic green tea varieties – Sencha, Oothu and Suoi Gang – from Fairtrade smallholders in China, India and Vietnam.

Mint Green Tea - Pukka’s green tea has been blended with the best, fresh tasting Fairtrade Egyptian spearmint to create a truly refreshing taste.

Lemon Green Tea - juicy Sicilian lemons and fragrant lemon verbena leaves have been combined with hand picked Sencha Green tea from Fairtrade smallholders in China, to add a subtle twist to this light green tea blend.

Pukka Herbs now sells 20 teas alongside its wide range of Ayurvedic remedies and oils.

The new range of Pukka Green Teas is available at independent healthfood shops, Fresh & Wild or online at www.pukkaherbs.com. All three varieties are priced at £1.99 for 20 sachets.
