Divine Farmer Camellia sinensis Pollen
A 100% RAW pollen from the venerated green tea plant
Part of our RAW Pollen superfood collection
Camellia Sinensis Pollen—also known as Tea or Green Tea Pollen—is a deeply restorative superfood, containing dense bio-active growth hormones, specific amino acids to aid anti-aging, and adaptogenic (adaptogen) compounds to help regulate and improve endocrine function without adding additional phyto-hormones (androgens) to your system.*
Our Divine Farmer RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen is completely RAW, is collected from ecological cultivated green tea (Camellia sinensis) fields, and is minimally processed to crack the cell wall of the pollen to promote complete digestion.
RAW Pollens, including this RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen, are some of our most favorite foods. That is because there is really no other food that is so nutrient dense, has so many micro-nutrients and phyto-nutrients, as these Pollens. Like all RAW Pollens, our Camellia Pollen is full of raw amino acids and living enzymes, vitamins, protein, minerals, essential fatty acids, and a whole host of other macro and micro-nutrients and phyto-nutrients. Additionally, highly accessible forms of the many beneficial compounds found in green tea (the leaves of the Camellia sinensis) plant are present in our RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen. The healing compounds of green tea include a class of polyphenols called catechins. The major catechins found in Camellia sinensis include catechin, gallaogatechin, epicatechin, epigallocatechin, epicatechin gallate, and apigallocatechin gallate (also known as EGCG).
Our RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen is an ethically harvested bee pollen that is strictly collected from organic or ecologically grown Camellia sinensis tea plantations. This pollen is collected and then processed using the same low temperature forced air pulverization as our other RAW Pollens (including our RAW Pine Pollen), resulting in a highly digestible cracked pollen cell wall.

The Major Differences from Pine Pollen
Pine Pollen, among many other things, is an androgenic food, meaning that Pine Pollen contains the major male-sex hormones (phyto-androgens). This unique aspect of Pine Pollen is highly beneficial for those wanting to increase androgen levels and/or those experiencing low androgen levels due to Andropause or other health concerns leading to low androgen levels. However, the androgenic compounds in Pine Pollen are not for everyone, and many people prefer to use our Camellia Pollen to experience the deep nutrition of Pine Pollen without the added phyto-hormones.
RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen offers much of the same dense nutrient profile. Additionally, as mentioned above, Camellia offers other beneficial compounds and has benefits far different from what Pine Pollen offers (and which is why we prefer a combination of the two).
Our RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen is for everyone that actively wants to promote deep, restorative health.
Health Benefits of Green Tea
- May help increase hematopoiesis (red blood cell production);
- Restorative benefits to fight fatigue;
- Amino acids and prebiotic fiber to increase detoxification;
- Believed to aid memory and mental function (possibly through nutrition);
- May benefit the immune system;
- Promote healthy endocrine (hormone) system function.*
Unique Protein Analysis
Laboratory testing has identified close to 400 different proteins in fresh Camellia sinensis Pollen. The proteins found are from a unique group of proteins called "defense-related" proteins, meaning that they strengthen the body against stress (environmental, lifestyle, mental and physical), and rebuild from the damage already caused by stress.*
46 different types of proteins are found in fresh RAW Camellia Sinensis Pollen which help increase:
- Energy metabolism;
- Cytoskeleton function (stronger cellular cytoplasm);
- Nucleic acid metabolism;
- Membrane transport;
- Amino acid metabolism;
- Stress response;
- Protein metabolism
- DNA and RNA transcription and reproduction;
- Fat metabolism.*
Our RAW Camellia Sinensis Pollen is over 99% digestible, ensuring that you absorb and experience all the health benefits of Camellia sinensis pollen. In comparison, unprocessed bee pollen (as commonly found in health food stores) is estimated at a digestibility rate of only 5%.
RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen contains 5 to 8 times higher levels of amino acids than raw dairy or eggs, making this Pollen both unique and a powerhouse of amino acids. These amino acids includes specific acids which promote liver cell detoxification and other anti-aging processes in the body. Like all of our RAW Pollens, RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen contains many naturally occurring vitamins, including a full spectrum of energy promoting B vitamins (more B Vitamins than any other Pollen we know of). It is also extremely high in Nucleic Acids, which increases the body's own healthy production of new cells and in correctly copying DNA and RNA. This promotes correct cell formation. Additionally, RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen is dense with bio-available trace minerals.
The Benefits of Green Tea
RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen is the pollen produced by the flowers of Camellia sinensis: The tea plant. Green tea, from which the leaves come from Camellia sinensis is increasingly highly regarded for its general and specific health benefits. As mentioned above, Camellia sinensis tea contains many beneficial compounds, including a class of polyphenols called catechins. The major catechins found in Camellia sinensis include catechin, gallaogatechin, epicatechin, epigallocatechin, epicatechin gallate, and apigallocatechin gallate (also known as EGCG). Some of the benefits of green tea include:
- Positive effects on the cardiovascular system, including prevention of high blood pressure and congestive heart failure;
- Increased working (fluid) memory;
- Blocking plaques formation as linked to Alzheimer's disease;
- Early research shows an anti-cancer effect;
- Promotes healthy cell formation and DNA replication
- L-theanine relaxes and improves cognition.
RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen is for everyone desiring optimum, restorative nutrition. It is a prefered RAW Pollen for those seeking to gain the benefits of RAW Pine Pollen but without the additional phyto-androgens present in Pine Pollen. RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen is especially cherished as a post-exercise supplement.

Divine Farmer RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen
Suggested dosage of our RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen is 1 gram, taken twice daily, or as otherwise directed.
Other Ingredients: None.
As with all of our products, we advise that these be taken on an empty stomach.
The flavor profile of RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen is pleasant and slightly sweet. For best results.
RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen, similar to RAW Brassica campestris Pollen (but different from RAW Pine Pollen) has a tendency to clump and not dissolve well on its own in water. Because of this, we like to mix these Pollens with liquid in a blender, or to shake them vigorously in a bottle or jar.
Of course, whichever way you decide to use it, the best way is the way that ensures regular, consistent use, because no gain is made from a product that sits untouched in the cupboard.
Store this product, and all RAW Forest Foods products, in a cool, dry place, away from sunlight and moisture. Try and use in a timely manner after opening the package.
For those customers who prefer to rotate their pro-androgenic and tonic herbs, we suggest a schedule of five days on and two days off, or four weeks on and one week off.
Before starting any new medicinal herbs or nutritional supplements (from our company or otherwise), customers should consult with their qualified health care practitioner. This not because we question the safety of our products, but because we believe in the strength of our products and that plants have a medicinal, therapeutic potential.
This product is not for use by those under the age of 18, who are pregnant or nursing, or who are allergic or adverse to any of the ingredients contained within.

I've only begun using this pollen so it's too early to know how it's helping me. I have also inquired about the dosage of both this pollen and the ESF. The web site suggests one dosage while the package/bottle suggests a totally different dosage. I haven't gotten a response either...I sure would love to know whether I'm taking it correctly.
Good product. The label states 65 teaspoon servings. Actually contains only 43 measured teaspoon servings. I have made two inquiries regarding this matter and no response. They must be aware of this problem as I have read the same complaint from other people. I guess they just don't care!
Biodynamic organic is always best
When the body presents a mystery to solve in time , we need to reach deep for some answers to questions we may not understand , in time . This may not be the answer to my riddle but it feels deeply relevant . I love Ryans ability to bridge the modern science with the t.c.m. and the c.c.m. counter rational . Thank you .
I actually liked this much more than the pine pollen . Deep yin nutrition . This pollen you feel as soon as you consume it.
The cold months make it really hard for me to stay healthy, but the past two winters I used Camellia Pollen to make a tonic with based on Ryan's recommendation of combining Pine Pollen and ginger. I make a strong ginger tea by boiling sliced ginger and water with a lid on it for 10 -15 minutes, then I add a Camellia Pollen and local wild flower honey. This is my daily morning ritual throughout the winter months. Everyday I am full of energy and have yet to be sick in two winters.
Excellent drink to begin the day.... Place 1 tsp Camelia Sinensis Pollen 1tsp Raw Honey 1/2 juice of Meyer Lemon (always nice in a Crystal Cup) Stir until blended. Add 6 oz of pure water. (:(:(:
This was the first time that I had ever heard of this product (I never knew green tea pollen could be harvested!) and as soon as I did what research I could, I KNEW I had to try this! The results have been incredible; from the very first time I tried this I felt relaxed and really filled-up with a calm energy and the focus indicative of green tea (though I'm not sure if this has any l-theanine, etc.). It left me satiated, relaxed, and really primed with energy and the taste was out of this world. I've been taking many things to recharge my Kidney system and this has become a new staple in my program for sure! I combine this with the TapRoot formula and the effects are hard to beat. Overall, I would REALLY recommend you try this one and combine it with some of the other products available here, especially at this price!
