Loose Leaf Green Tea
Green tea is an unoxidised type of tea. Therefore, Loose Leaf Green Tea resembles the original tea leaves most of all teas. Consequently, it preserves most of the nutrients from the tea leaf, hence its numerous health benefits. Green tea is admired for its freshness, delicacy, and, as mentioned previously, healthiness. For example, it is famous for containing a lot of antioxidants. Thus it is very good for cancer prevention.
Loose Leaf Green tea comes in different shapes: flat, needle-like, curled, rolled into balls, etc. Bedford tea has a very vast collection of Loose Leaf Green Tea, mainly coming from two countries: China and Japan.
Most tea produced in China is green tea. Therefore, Chinese green tea types, such as Gunpowder and Jasmine Green tea are world-famous. The Chinese adore green tea and drink it throughout the day, like water. Usually they would brew their tea in a thermos and keep it for the day.
Bedford Tea has a sizeable collection of Loose Chinese Green Tea, the most important types of which are Gunpowder Green Tea, Jasmine Tea and Oolong Tea.
Gunpowder Green Tea is one of the most famous Chinese teas! It is often referred to as ‘the pearl tea’ in China, because its leaves are rolled in the shape of pearls. Gunpowder Tea has a delicate, slightly bitter liquor, and would be a perfect choice in the afternoon!
Another important Chinese Tea in our collection of Loose Leaf Green Tea is Loose Oolong Tea. Strictly speaking, Oolong Tea is not exactly a green tea. It is a partly-fermented tea, but its taste and brewing conditions are very close to those of green tea. Therefore, we included oolong tea in our selection of Loose Leaf Green Tea. The most famous Loose Oolong Tea is Milk Oolong Tea, which owes its name to its remarkable creamy flavouring, commonly associated with milk.
And finally, the tea that is unmistakably associated with China is Jasmine Tea. This tea is world-famous, and one of the most popular teas in China. This tea owes its popularity to its wonderful jasmine fragrance, as well as very delicate and aromatic flavour. Feel free to discover our Loose Jasmine Tea!
Japanese tea is famous all over the world for its delicacy and very high quality. The best-known Japanese tea is Sencha. There are different types of Sencha, from the simple ones, to the very refined ones. Bedford Tea boasts an extensive selection of Sencha Green Tea Loose Leaf. All our types of sencha green tea are of very high quality, however, the most refined sencha tea that we have in our selection of Loose Leaf Green Tea is still Organic Japanese Sencha Green Tea! Not only is it extremely beneficial for your health, because it contains solely organic ingredients, but also it is of the most exquisite quality, and was produced according to the highest standards.
However, there is no limit to perfection. Therefore, the most refined Japanese Green Tea is stil Gyokuro Tea! This is the highest quality Loose Leaf Green Tea! Its name translates from Japanese as ‘jade dew’, and refers to the elegant jade colour of its liquor. This tea is by far the most exquisite tea in the world! And we are especially proud to offer you different types of Gyokuro tea, and especially Japanese Organic Gyokuro Green Tea! Please feel free to discover this heavenly drink!
Another interesting type of Japanese Green Tea is Genmaicha Tea. This tea is quite unusual, because it contains sencha tea leaves, as well as roasted rice. It has a slight aroma of popcorn, so many people refer to it as ‘the popcorn tea’. We do have Genmaicha tea in our collection of Loose Leaf Green Tea, therefore, please feel free to discover it!
Apart from the Chinese Jasmine Tea, we have other types of Flavoured Green Tea that can be quite interesting. For example, our Moroccan Mint Loose Leaf Tea is very fragrant, and has a lovely refreshing taste of mint. Therefore, it will definitely not leave you indifferent. Or, why don’t you discover our Earl Grey Green tea? As the name suggests it, this tea has a bergamot flavouring, that goes very well with the classic sencha green tea. Besides, we have many other types of Flavoured Green Tea in our collection of Loose Leaf Green Tea! Enjoy!
As mentioned above, green tea has a huge number of health benefits due to the antioxidants that it contains. However we have another collection dedicated to very healthy tea, because all the tea types in this group contain solely organic ingredients. This is our very extensive selection of Organic Tea!
