Mint Green Tea from Stash is one tasty hot beverage. This particular blend is crafted in a fashion similar to teas originating in Morocco during the 1850s. Best part is that Green Tea is incredibly healthy.
Stash began growing teas in 1972 from a Victorian styled home in Tigard Oregon. From early on the folks at Stash were blending the worlds best tea leaves with Oregon peppermint which is considered among the world's best (its also nice to see Stash do something nice for their community). This attention to quality has allowed Stash to grow consistently over the past 35 year racking up many industry awards along the way.
To craft Moroccan Mint Green Tea, Stash blends premium quality green tea leaves, China Young Hyson, with premium peppermint from their back yard in Portland Oregon, spearmint and lemongreass. The result is a great tasting premium green tea that is unsurpassed by other bagged tea products.
While I really like the mellow green tea and mint taste, the health benefits makes this a near perfect drink. The health benefits of green tea come from the fact that green tea contains 4 Polyphenals, these 4 Polyphenals jointly make up green tea's Catechins. Catechins are powerful antioxidants, which means they destroy free radicals. By removing free radicals from the body green tea helps slow the aging process by slowing degenerative disease. Green tea is also known to slow the release of carbohydrates into the body controls blood insulin levels. In doing so, green tea actually promotes fat burning. No green tea will not make you thin, it is however a part of a healthy diet.
Whether you drink green tea for its taste, health benefits or both, pick up a pack of Stash Moroccan Mint Green Tea. Its a great tea and a nice alternative to traditional green teas.
