Simply, shake, steep, and sip … anywhere, anytime – and in just five minutes, you will have delicious tea that is ready to drink. One temple brews continuously for 24 hours and it never goes bitter in the process.
Our patented cold-brew process maintains the fresh loose-leaf flavor of the tea and boosts the antioxidant and mineral content of the original leaves. Our tea leaves are a special blend of black loose leaves that are handpicked at the source in the early spring. Sourced from all over the world, CereTea represents the highest quality tea leaves available anywhere.
Each box contains 30 temples – a full month's supply. Beautifully designed and packaged, CereTea makes the perfect gift or personal treat for busy, on-the-go people, students, and travelers.
Tea contains almost ten times the amounts of antioxidants of vegetables and fruits. The polyphenols in black tea have been found to intensify the growth of beneficial gut bacteria and promote the formation of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). These compounds are the main source of energy for the cells in your digestive system.
Simply put, these results suggest that black teas are prebiotics, substances that induce the growth of good bacteria in your system and support microbial metabolism – the process by which your cells obtain the energy they need to reproduce.
This unique combination of a non-caloric beverage that improves gut health make it an effective aid in weight loss. Additionally, CereTea has an exceptionally high flavonoid content, which supports weight loss by increasing the amount of energy your body uses, even when at rest, leading to more efficient metabolism of body fat.
Recent studies have shown evidence that tea improves attention, work performance, and creativity.
Tea contains caffeine and theanine, an amino acid that is unique to tea. The beneficial effects of tea on attention have been found to include improved recognition reaction time, plus improved accuracy on multisensory auditory and visual tasks.
Three further studies found benefits in relation to stress: 200 mg of theanine reduced self-reported anxiety in anticipation of a stressful event or after a mental task. It also reduced physiological signs of stress, such as heart rate and salivary immunoglobulin during engagement in a stressful task.
The positive effects of tea on stress recovery were exemplified in a six-week experiment on healthy men. In this study, tea consumption was found to reduce cortisol concentrations (the stress hormone) and increase subjective relaxation at the end of the recovery period.
Furthermore, there was an indication that both positive affect-inducing conditions improved creative problem-solving when compared with water, in that both tended to yield faster insights on difficult problems.
Traditionally cold-brewed tea is prepared by steeping and brewing the tea in cold water overnight, anywhere from 6-24 hours before serving. Cold brew brings forth the best flavor of the tea leaves. It is sweeter, smoother, and contains less caffeine and higher antioxidant content than teas brewed in hot water.
CereTea uses a patented nanotechnology process, which, when applied to loose-leaf black tea leaves, is able to dramatically reduce the process of cold brew down to just 5 minutes. All you need is room-temperature or cold water to brew a refreshing, naturally sweet cup of black tea!
Cold brew tea contains less caffeine than tea brewed in hot water because less caffeine is extracted from the leaves.
Cold brew tea contains more antioxidants than hot tea and has 10x the antioxidant capacity of fruits and vegetables. Hot water destroys or damages the catechins in the tea leaves, but the cold brew process completely avoids this.
Studies have shown that tea delivers significant health benefits, particularly as a prebiotic, but also supporting mental alertness, focus, and reduced stress. Being zero calorie and high in antioxidants (particularly high in flavonoids), tea can only be of benefit to you.
Yes! Cold brew tea tastes sweeter and smoother. It also doesn’t have the bitterness that you often find in teas that are brewed in hot water. This is because brewing in cold water doesn’t extract tannins (the chemical responsible for that dry, astringent taste) from the tea leaves.
Our loose-leaf black tea is of premium quality. They are the highest-quality tea leaves on the market, handpicked from the farm as soon as the first shoots sprout their leaves in the springtime. These leaves, in particular, contain the most glucose and hence, CereTea leaves elicit a naturally sweet flavor.
Cold brew tea contains less caffeine because steeping in cold water releases less caffeine.
Our tea leaves have a two-year shelf life.
