Heavenly Blue Peak: A wonderfully aromatic and flavorful tea, our high-grade "Qing Ding" lot offers the tea lover an opportunity to enjoy 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.
Jasmine Pearls: A delight to watch unfold, these hand-rolled pearls open to release a sweet and delicate green tea redolent with the fresh scent of jasmine flower petals. The taste is very natural, smooth and clean. A refreshing and soothing tea, Jasmine Pearls is great with food as well.
Buddhist Tea: Robust, nuanced in flavor, named for the Buddhist monks that once drank this tea to improve focus and endurance during meditation, this green is offers a distinctive vegetal, grassy flavor, with a light note of early-spring asparagus; soft and sweet on the palate with a lingering finish.
