The Angiogenesis Foundation is a well respected research foundation dedicated to understanding and controlling excessive blood vessel (angio genesis) development. They have found that controlling blood vessel growth is very beneficial to controlling many of life's aliments. We worked with them to find a tea blend that would help prevent excessive blood vessel growth. Tests were done on various teas and this blend was tested to be the best.
I love this tea. It has a wonderful flavor and is calming. Knowing that it is healthy and may be more powerful than some cancer treatments makes it even more a joy to drink. I brew mine for at least 5 - 7 minutes, and actually leave the bag in the cup as I drink it. I've been drinking this tea since I saw the TED talk, about 2 years now. (Posted on 7/13/15)
I drink this tea daily, usually in the morning. I find it to have lots of body and flavor. If it is different each time, as another reviewer has said, I haven't noticed this. Perhaps it is sensitive to the brewing temperature and time. (Posted on 12/12/13)
I hate to leave this negative review, because I wanted to support this cause and I had been blending Japanese Sencha and Dragon Pearl Jasmine after watching the Ted Talks that evidently prompted this. First off, I don't see where it is mentioned, but this is essentially just those two teas mixed together. It may be worth it for the convenience of having them both in one sachet, but this tastes pretty bad. Also, the proportion of sencha to jasmine is very inconsistent from sachet to sachet. But my main problem is that mixing the Japanese Sencha and Dragon Pearl Jasmine together myself actually tastes really good! Is it a different type of sencha? I am using Harney’s, so I would have thought it would be the same, but it definitely is not. Also, do not brew for as long as the bag says or it will get much worse. I hope Harney goes back to the drawing board on this because it was a good idea, but poorly executed. So, I'll give one star for the tea and raise one for the research, which I do appreciate.
