Premium Green Teas

Organic Jasmine Pearls
Highest grade and rare green jasmine tea from China. Prized, as it is made only with the top growth and tender leaf tips. This early Spring pick is set aside until the peak of Jasmine blooming season when tea and flowers are layered in separate trays. This process is repeated nine times then the leaves are carefully hand rolled into small pearls and are a delight to watch slowly "unfurl" as they steep. A very fragrant, sweet, and refreshing tea.

Gyokuro
Also known as "Precious Dew Pearl", this is a highly famous tea from Japan. It requires more skillful and careful selection of leaves than other green teas. At the end of the growing season, the tea plants are covered by tarps and bamboo mats for three weeks before plucking. This shade grown process enhances the deep green color, flavor and antioxidant properties.

Organic Matcha
Matcha or powdered green tea (prepared with a bamboo whisk and a bowl) is essential to Chanoyu, Japan's traditional art of tea ceremony.

This organic tea has a sweet, buttery and rich oceanic taste, hence it's other name - Liquid Jade.
