Many of us reach for a hot cup of tea because of its well-researched health benefits. What most people don't realize is this: antioxidants in traditional dried teas are depleted during the process of turning it from a fresh-picked leaf to a dried product that sits on a shelf. The more exposure tea leaves have to heat, light and air, the fewer antioxidants are preserved.
A New Brunswick couple, prompted by a health scare in the family, started researching tea’s powerful ability to promote health and prevent and fight disease.
What they learned sent them looking for fresh tea. When they couldn’t find “fresh-leaf tea” anywhere, they created a solution to safeguard more of tea’s life-giving antioxidants. It's called Millennia Tea.
All tea starts out from the same leaf, called Camellia Sinensis. It’s how the leaves are processed (i.e. dried and cooked) after picking that determines whether the finished tea is a loose-leaf green tea, a black “tea bag” tea, etc
Fresh-Leaf TEA is a completely new way of experiencing tea in its purest and most naturally-powerful form. We wash and flash-freeze raw, organic tea leaves using a patent-pending method. We do this to maximize tea’s nutritional properties – and associated health benefits.
The result is Fresh-Leaf TEA delivers 5x the antioxidants of conventional green tea.
As a company born out of a health scare, we are laser focused on maximizing the nutritional properties of tea. We spent three years fine-tuning our method to deliver a fresh tea product extremely rich in antioxidants.
5X Antioxidant Boost: In lab testing, Millennia TEA is scientifically proven to contain 5x more antioxidants than a dried green tea created from the very same leaves.
Picked. Washed. Frozen: Our organic tea leaves are washed and flash frozen within hours of being fresh-picked directly from the highest quality tea fields nestled in the mountains of Sri Lanka. This locks in all the antioxidants that are typically lost through the drying and heating processes used by conventional tea companies.
Fresh-Leaf TEA is packed full of antioxidants that have been proven to tremendously aid overall health & help prevent disease.
- FUEL WELLNESS AND PREVENT ILLNESS
Millennia TEA contains high levels of a powerhouse catechin called EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate). Catechins are antioxidants that help prevent cell damage caused by free radicals. EGCG’s antioxidant capacity is 100x more powerful than Vitamin C and 25x more effective than Vitamin E in protecting your body’s cells from free radical damage and disease.
- ENERGY BOOST
Millennia TEA contains less than half the caffeine of a cup of coffee, along with the caffeine regulator L-theanine. L-theanine is credited with delivering a steady flow of “zen-like” energy, without the jitters and crash people experience from coffee.
- REDUCE INFLAMMATION
In addition to overall feelings of wellness and increased energy, reduced inflammation is the #1 comment we get from our customers. By suppressing inflammation-related enzymes, we love hearing how EGCG helps reduce discomfort, pain and other symptoms of inflammation, to help us lead healthier, fuller, longer lives.
- NATURAL ANTIVIRAL
The powerhouse antioxidant in TEA, EGCG, has awesome antiviral effects. It is recognized as one of the leading superfoods to boost immune system and ward off cold and flu infections.
Millennia Tea has the highest potency of EGCG on the market since the leaves are preserved at their nutritional prime, never dried and processed.
Scientific and medical research shows EGCG positively supports health and longevity in the following ways:
