Sometime during the month of November we will be receiving shipment of a brand new product: Olive Leaf Tea. It will arrive just in time for you to give as another unique and healthy gift we try to feature here at Marisolio. The antioxidant properties found in olives are amazing, but in the leaves from the tree itself, they are more outstanding. After being collected, the leaves are cleaned, sanitized, and then are put through a Japanese steaming method to complete the process of making tea leaves. There are 16 bags in each canister.
- Our teas are produced from fresh leaves harvested in the Spring and Autumn from Boundary Bend’s olive groves in north west Victoria, Australia.
- They are picked and processed fresh using a traditional Japanese green tea method utilizing steaming, cooling and rolling to maximize the flavor and antioxidant content.
- Our olive leaf tea is 100% produced from fresh leaves, and all of our olive leaves are fully traceable from grove to cup
- The packaging is beautiful and makes an amazing gift, perfect for this holiday season and beyond!
