OXALIS LOOSE LEAF TEAS
Loose leaf tea has been gaining in significance in the catering (HoReCa) segment. It’s the most natural version of tea that people have known about since time immemorial. It can be characterised by several attributes:
High quality comes as standard - anyone can ensure the quality of the leaves at the point of selection. The structure of the tea leaves is neither affected by mechanical processing nor hidden away, out of view, inside a bag. Loose leaf teas can easily be assessed visually, as well as by aroma and the sense of touch.
Wide range of tea variations – several hundred types of loose leaf tea are on the market.
Low cost per serving – loose leaf tea is not packed in single portions, so it does not include any additional materials (filtration paper, string, tags, and so on). This reduces the actual purchase price.
The various components of each tea are present in their compact, undamaged or unbroken form (pieces of fruit, herbs and others). This results in a greater level of visual diversity between the numerous types, and heightens the effectiveness of tea blends.
We have selected 50 types that essentially cover the variation of tea in its entirety. Choose from these to form the assortment that best suits your needs. Should assistance be required, please do not hesitate to contact our experts.
OXALIS loose leaf teas are packed in 0.5 or 1 kg bags. Our recommendation is to use the ITAKA set or PHILLIP tea set for one.

Matcha – a very special green tea
Matcha boasts the longest history of all shaded Japanese green teas, it comes in powder form and has been traditionally used in Zen Buddhist ceremonies for over 800 years. Matcha contains far more substances beneficial to health than any other form of green tea. It’s characteristic for its high content of chlorophyll – a rich source of antioxidants, and L-Theanine – an amino acid responsible for its full-bodied and smooth taste. Moreover, this amino acid encourages relaxation and helps to reduce stress. Amazingly, the quantity of antioxidants in one serving of Matcha equals that of 10 cups of ordinary green tea.
Other beneficial substances in Matcha are antioxidants - catechins, the most appreciated of which is EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate). Consequently, Matcha has 17 times the antioxidation capacity of blueberries and 26 times that of acai berries.
OXALIS imports Matcha directly from three territories: Japan (its traditional home), South Korea and China. All the varieties available are organic. In addition to selling Matcha packaged in an original caddy (30 g), we also offer single-serving portions for one bowl (cup) for convenient preparation.
