- White Peony Tea is picked early in the season when the buds are still fresh, young, and tender. Because of this early picking, the taste white tea produces is very mild and sweet, without the sometimes astringent qualities of regular green teas. White tea consists of beautiful, full length leaves, and young tight buds which produces a perfectly balanced cup. While the name of this tea can be a misnomer, it should be understood that it is embodied with hues of green and fermented brown, with delicate white tones to lay the final touches.
- Houjicha green tea is a classic beverage popularly sipped in China and Japan. What makes this organic tea so delectable is that the freshly picked tea leaves have their fermentation period shortened by slowly roasting the whole leaves to a warm brown color. This process yields a cup which produces a lovely amber color, and smooth texture without the tannic sharpness of traditional green teas. Lovers of Oolong will especially enjoy Houjicha.
Ancient Forest Tea: This handsome tea is worthy of all our esteem and veneration because it comes to us exclusively from stands of protected ancient growth tea plants in the Yunnan province of China, all of which range in age from 500 to 2,700 years old. The most alluring aspect of this tea is the deeply penetrating flavor and aroma that it imparts, which is unlike any other black or green tea on the market. Bold, dark, and inviting; this tea is partially fermented which will appeal to the senses of both the black tea lover and the green tea lover.
