Green Tea

What our customers say

Your Organic Sencha Premium was much better than any green tea I have had in the past (Raphael B.)

Our featured green teas

Chinese Green Tea from Sichuan Province, ChinaOrganic Rizhao Xue Qing (Snow Green)
When you drink this fresh green tea, you instantly understand why the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture has titled this tea as Green Food. The infused liquor is incredibly rich and broth-like, and it reminds me a lot of the Japanese Gyokuro - sweet, incredibly flavourful and no bitterness whatsoever. The dry leaves are formed into wiry spirals and look like tiny objects of art. If you have tried green tea in the past and were put off by its astringency (bitterness), try this one! Outstanding quality at an affordable price.

Green Tea from ancient tea treesYunnan Ancient Tea Tree Buds
This is one of our most unusual teas and a rare find. Produced in very small quantities from hand-harvested buds of century-old tea trees, it has a flavour that is not commonly found in tea. These large buds are harvested from trees that usually produce the raw material for arbor pu-erh and possess an incredibly sweet aroma. Infused, the tea reminds almost of raspberry leaf infusions, but with a seducing sweetness. Mellow, soft and deep.

Green Tea from ChinaMengding Shihua (Stone Flower)
Mengding Shihua is one of the most delicate green teas that China produces. It is produced from leaves grown near the summit ('ding') of Mengshan Mountain in Sichuan Province. The tea is made from only the smallest, most delicate shoots of the first harvest, which are flattened during the pan-firing process. The infusion is vegetal like Long Jing and leaves a lasting aftertaste.

Sencha Fukamushi SuperiorSencha Fukamushi Superior
Produced in Japan's prestigious Uji region, this is a tea that embodies the meaning of spring: fresh, fragrant and invigorating. Fukamushi means that the leaves are deep-steamed (roughly 2-3 times longer than for regular Sencha), which takes out most of its astringency and imparts sweetness. Our Sencha Fukamushi Superior is produced from a mixture of Sencha and Gyokuro leaves and its yellow-green infusion will enchant you.
