For hundreds of years bamboo leaves have been used in both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicinal teas. Not only is it a sustainable crop, it can be used to make a tea that''s good for you! Bamboo leaves have some of the highest concentrations of vegetable silica, the mineral that makes bamboo grass grow strong, tall and flexible. Silica is great for maintaining hair and nail health. Bamboo leaf tea also contains 1 gram of soluble fiber per 8oz cup and is a good source of micronutrients and antioxidants. The natural flavor of bamboo tea is sweet, complete and mildly grassy for a fresh, light tea! Taste the difference of Uncle Lee''s Teas!
