Traditional Chinese use of herbs and teas dates back thousands of years. Recently, here in the West, people have discovered the value of this ancient practice. Tea drinkers are able to enjoy a wider variety of Chinese herbs and teas that rarely were used in the West until recent times. Different parts of plants are used, including the leaves, stems, roots, barks, seeds and flowers. Herbs are often blended together, and prepared and consumed as teas. The Chinese tradition of using herbs and teas has been passed on from generation to generation over the centuries.
Triple Leaf Tea comes from such a tradition. It is made in the U.S.A by a Chinese American family-owned business. The company owner can remember stories of his own grandfather selling herbs and teas in his village in China. Today these traditional Chinese herbs and teas are available to you.
