Organic green teas produced from wild tea trees in the highlands of Vietnam, with the help of the local Hmong people, feature in a new range of organic blends designed by Natur Boutique to offer health benefits as well as great flavors. Grown at high altitude, the tea leaves mature more slowly, developing a richer, more subtle flavor. They are then carefully hand plucked to ensure that only the new buds and young leaves are used.
The blenders of this new range believe that by using more natural methods of cultivation, and by avoiding synthetic insecticides and fertilizers, a richer flavor is achieved and so they have used only organic ingredients in their green tea with lemongrass, designed to aid relaxation; an artichoke infusion that soothes the stomach; and a variety of diet blends.
If a little sweetness was needed in the mix, they added liquorice or pineapple; and for added flavor and sophistication, hibiscus and java teas were mixed into the blend. These teas and infusions are on sale in Holland and Barrett in the UK.
