One day, the Chinese emperor was sitting in the garden and listening to the birdsong. At some point, a leaf fell from the tree into a cup of water. The Emperor tasted the water from this cup and liked the taste. He told to the local chefs to make the special leaves infusions. Gradually he became addicted to this drink.
Green tea and black tea are made from the same type of plant called Camellia sinensis, but the true tea-lovers appreciate the tea infusions, mixtures of herbs and even cubes of dried fruit.
For thousand years, Tea was the symbol of status and Chinese nobility. Later, with the development of agriculture and the opening of the Silk Road that enabled trade with the other European countries, tea production and tea infusions began to increase. This is, in short, the history of the green tea invention.
In all cultures, teas have found their place.
Tea infusions from various herbs take pride of place among true connoisseurs of tea.

Jerusalem is a unique city that has a lot of names - the white city, the golden city, the city of King David - the city that despite all the invaders and conquerors remained stunning and special.
If you have ever taken a walk in Jerusalem or the surrounding area, you must have noticed the scents that flow in the air - of the vineyards and the pines, just like in a song by Naomi Shemer. Everyone has their own Jerusalem: whether you love the mountains or prefer to indulge in the stones of the Western Wall or the alleys of the ancient city, you will always want to return to Jerusalem.
But let’s say and you live far away, even in another country. How would you feel the air of the Jerusalem mountains? In the Jerusalem tea infusion by Yoffi
There are unique aromas of the eternal city – louisa, citrus peel (orange and lemon), lime (lemongrass) and mint.
It is lighter than the Bedouin infusion, perhaps because it does not contain the black tea leaves, but it is also rich and very special in taste.

Imagine yourself hiking in the desert. It is definitely fun, but the hot sun and sand all around make you feel thirsty. Luckily, not far from you stands a Bedouin tent. You go inside and get a warm and emotional welcome. The host serves you a glass with a steaming black drink..is that coffee? No, this is an infusion of black tea with sage and cardamom, a very rich and unique taste. Amazing, but despite the heat outside, the Bedouin tea infusion manages to quench your thirst.
The Bedouin tea infusion of "Yoffi" is the only infusion that contains black tea and is based on the local flavors of the Bedouin diaspora. The desert landscape of the Negev, tents, camels and palm trees are featured on the tea package.
The green Galilee Mountains in the north of the Land of Israel are perceived by many as the ultimate vacation spot. A place where you can escape from the routine.

If it rains, you can sit inside the cozy villa with a beautiful mountain view sip hot tea.
Our Galilean infusion is a perfect winter drink. It surprises with the prominent notes of marjoram and rosemary, plants you did not think of as part of the infusion, but the addition of sage and the stinging citrus peels make the decoction exciting and memorable. Even if you drink it at home or at work or at any other point on earth, it takes you in one moment to the Galilee Mountains.
You will recognize the package of the Galilean Tea by the juicy green color, like the color of the foliage of the trees. On the back of the package you can read explanations of the most favorite places in the area.
