THE HEALTHIEST PART OF YOUR TEA: SEDIMENT 101
So, you may have noticed something at the bottom of your cup…
Did you know that Tea Drops are loose leaf tea? No additives, just tea and a little sugar!
This makes Tea Drops not instant tea. Instant tea is derived from extracting tea from processed leaves, and then drying the concentrate to a powder form by freeze drying. Tea Drops on the other hand, are produced with genuine tea leaves that are delicately grinded and pressed together. Nothing freeze dried, no extraction process, just delicious and genuine tea... That’s why you may notice tea sediment at the bottom of your cup!
Because Tea Drops are made of genuine fine tea leaves, you will notice some leaf residue as you get close to finishing your cup, much like when you make french press coffee. In fact, though the tea leaf sediment at the bottom of the cup might seem like a different tea drinking experience, in a lot of Asian cultures, tea drinkers consuming tea leaves is part of the tea experience. Some people even read their tea leaves!
The loose leaf tea residue is completely safe to drink and rich in nutrients and antioxidants because the leaves are what hold the health benefits from your cuppa! Each kind of tea leaf has different benefits you can look into, but they are all good sources of vitamins and immunity aids.
So based on what we've told you, we recommend trying it out! If it's not for you, skip the last sip... tea time is your time!
