This unique pollen produced in Asia and comes from tea plants grown on farms in pristine and remote environments. Our Tea Blossom Bee Pollen contains grains from a wide variety of tea plants grown in these regions. We then take these pollen grains and grind them into a fine powder to make it easier to integrate into foods and beverages.
Bee pollen is the male seeds of flowers collected on the legs of honeybees and formed into granules. Honey bees rely on this pollen and honey for food. Bee pollen contains the vitamins, minerals, amino acids (proteins), enzymes and fatty acids needed for the human body-some call it Nature's Perfect Food. Scientists have reported that bee pollen has more protein than beef per serving.
This high-quality bee pollen is collected at certain times of the year (making sure to allow bees plenty of time to store their own supply) by placing a pollen trap at the hive entrance. The pollen trap gently brushes the pollen off the bees’ legs as they enter the hive. The pollen then falls into a collection bin. Finally, the beekeeper cleans and dries the pollen at low temperatures, which preserves its potency.
Note: This product does not contain any of the 8 major allergens. In rare cases bee products may cause allergic reactions in some people.
