The green tea featured in Javita’s Lean+Green is grown in the Shizuoka region of Japan, considered the ‘Napa Valley’ of green tea. This third-generation grower, whose family has been cultivating tea for nearly 100 years, has discovered the secret to the perfect cup. Their secret, and the key to this award-winning tea, is a combination of factors which include the growing environment (recognized as a Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System), harvesting conditions and micronization process. In addition to the nutrient-rich soil and clean-air environment, every leaf is steam sealed for freshness and to preserve the tea’s natural green color.
As an extra quality measure, each batch of tea undergoes a proprietary 20-day, multi-step micronization process to release delicate flavors, preserve key nutrients and remove excess water.
