The best way to get the most nutritional benefit from green tea is to eat the whole leaf.  Tender tea buds are hand-picked and fermented by organic tea farmers in Burma to create a delicious umami-rich flavor that is savory, energizing, unforgettable, and naturally loaded with flavonoids and catechin – a potent variety of antioxidants.

The pile of pungent, soft, fermented tea leaves is so alluring, I might follow it into a dark alley some night.
