Green Tea Gift
Treat yourself or a friend to a sampling of three organic artisan green teas. Elegantly packaged in our clear top re-usable tins and gift box, makes it a perfect gift for both the novice and experienced tea drinker.
Included in the set:
Buddhist: A classic vegetal-tasting green made of early-spring leaves. Enjoyed by Buddhist monks, Fo Cha, through hundreds of years of cultivation, has developed into a varietal with a grassy-sweet aroma and fresh, vegetal flavors of asparagus. It will cup to a rich yellow-green color and the liquor is smooth and soft.
Heavenly Blue Peak: Literally translated as "Blue Green Summit", our high-grade Qing Ding lot offers the tea lover an opportunity to enjoy a wonderfully aromatic and flavorful tea. One of China's "famous teas", its leaves are delicate and a very rich, fresh-green color. Grown at higher elevations, the taste is nuanced, offering some hints of nuttiness but primarily naturally sweet notes that will linger with plenty of mouth feel.
Dragon Well: The leaf is medium size, uniform and showing classic colors of jade green and rich, yellow-gold, the result of firing the leaves in a wok. Note the light "fuzz" on the leaves indicating an early-pick and the unmistakably delicious aroma that suggests its fresh taste. Cup liquor offers a nutty note and a sweet, clean flavor with a pleasing, lingering aftertaste.

Supporting adults with disabilities
Silk Road Teas is more than just tea. We are committed to giving back to our community by providing jobs packaging our teas to disabled adults. As the older brother of a disabled person, Ned Heagerty, Silk Road Teas President, recognized the challenges and limited opportunities disabled adults face. So he wanted to make a difference. It is a small step, but it is an action we believe in and will continue to follow. Recently, we were honored by receiving the Employer of the Year Award from Integrated Community Services (ICS) for our commitment to employ persons with disabilities.
Selected by the finest shops and restaurants
Our award-winning teas are proudly served at these and other fine restaurants, stores and tea shops.
