Let us take you on a journey through the incredibly rich history and taste of Chinese teas.
1. Ming Qian Long Jing 明前龙井
Long Jing is synonymous with green tea in China and for a great reason does it hold legendary status. Ming Qian is one of the earliest spring picking times and the highest in quality.

2. Osmanthus Green Tea
This incredibly aromatic tea is made using traditional methods with Osmanthus flowers layered on top of the finished tea to infuse the aroma then removed by hand over several steps. Osmanthus flower bushes have the potency to fill an entire area where they grow and the scent travels far downwind. The combination of the floral taste and aroma with the citrus qualities of this Qing Xin hybrid is a delicate yet refined mix.

3. Organic Woojeon Green Tea 우전
This harvest received plenty of rain in the winter and dry spring to force the trees to dig deeper for nourishment through the roots. Our tea comes from semi-wild tea trees that are about 60 years old and picked around April 20th. Woojeon is picked two weeks after Hwahoo and the leaves are slightly more matured. Some of the cell structure in the leaf is more defined and it creates a bigger taste and slightly more astringency.
Stone fruit, golden flowers, savory, refreshing bitterness
