What Are the Ingredients in Rejuvenate Me Green Tea?
1. Green Tea - Green tea from Meghalaya is handpicked from the tea gardens that are grown at an elevation of over 6000 feet. The high altitude, the traditional method of cultivation, climate and soil allows the plant to bear more shoots as well as elevating its quality.
Its chemical composition varies with factors such as climate, season, horticultural practices, and position of the leaves on the harvested shoot.
The most important components are polyphenols-Flavonoids. There are four major flavonoids in green tea- catechins- epicatechin, epigallocatechin, epicatechin gallate and epigallocatechin gallate.
Epigallocatechin gallate is the most important active component which is maximum in leaf bud and first leaves. The usual concentration of total polyphenols in dried green tea leaves is 8-12%.
Green tea originated in China and is widely used throughout Asia. It has been used as a medicine from thousands of years from lowering blood pressure to preventing cancer. Green tea has more health benefits than black tea due to its processing. In black tea, its processing is in such a way that it allows fermentation whereas green tea processing avoids fermentation process which results in retaining maximum antioxidant and polyphenol content.
2. Lakadong turmeric chunks - Lakadong Turmeric is a special variety of turmeric from a place called ‘Lakadong’, in Jaintia Hills, Meghalaya. It is known for its medicinal qualities as the Curcumin content in it is between 7 to 12.32% (last tested in 2020), which is one of the highest, as against 2 to 3% in most varieties of turmeric. Curcumin in it is responsible for its bright yellowish-orange colour along with its incredible medicinal properties. This component also determines its value. So, the higher the curcumin level the higher the value.
3. Ing Makhir ginger chunks - Zingiber rubens is one of the varieties of Ginger. It is a common spice used by the locals of Meghalaya due to its potent medicinal values.
It is locally known as "Sying Makhir" in Khasi and “Iching” in Garo.
Belonging to the same family as Ginger, it also contains an active component known as "gingerol" as well as some other vitamins, minerals, and essential oils in it.
Ing Makhir is a highly valued variety of ginger plant sold in the local markets for its strong medicinal properties as compared to the common ginger root. Ing Makhir contains zingiberene an essential oil which contributes to the strong distinct smell of the root.
The rhizome is rich in properties like antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea, and many other more. It also helps improve digestion, relieves congestion and cold, relieve pain, removes bad breath, etc.
4. Long pepper - Piper longum is a popular spice of Meghalaya. It is known as “Pippali” in Sanskrit and in our local language khasi, it is known as “Sohmarit khlaw”. It is referred to as long pepper as the fruits are long and slender and look a little like dried green chillies as the spikes on its surface looks like a rough-skinned version of chilli peppers. This product is not only a native of Meghalaya, but it is also a solid insurance policy for the farmers of Meghalaya.
Our Long pepper is sourced directly from Pynursla, Meghalaya and it has a bitter, spicy, and warming taste which is perhaps due to the presence of volatile content such as piplatine, piperlonguminine, piperine and other unique chemical components. These phytoconstituents are responsible for producing distinctive aroma, flavour, and health benefits.
