Fellow Tea Lover,

 

This month we are excited to introduce a few new features for our newsletter and our website. First of all, we are rolling out a blog, which you can find here! We will be sharing in depth articles, perspective, and news from our farm, store, and the tea industry at this blog. Secondly, we are introducing a starter set for those who are new to the tea scene. Bundled in this set is either our 8 oz, 12 oz, or glass filter tea cup and five of our tea sample packs. Check out these great sets here. Finally, we are introducing our first video this month, where we give a quick demo on how to use our Filter Tea Cup. Enjoy, and please let us know what other videos you would like to see!

Pao Blossom White Tea Leaves

Cultivated on only 3-5 square miles of land in the world, the rare Pao Blossom is a relative of the grapefruit used medicinally in China to lower blood pressure and clean impurities away from the body.

High Mountain Green Tea (Premium)

High Mountain Green Tea Leaves

Like sunlight sparkling through leaves, refreshing bright clear green cup with strong flavor and crisp finish. This tea was grown in the misty billows of our 2700ft high mountaintop teafield, the rarest type of green tea plant. The very small and tender leaves create a sweet and very "green" flavor. Compared to most green teas, Our High Mountain Green Tea is slightly sweeter and milder.

 

Golden Needle King

Golden Needle King Leaves

Shimmering golden buds create a crisp and robust red tea made from fermented white tea buds and young leaves. Most red tea and black teas are derived from the green tea variety bush; this tea is derived from a white tea plant achieving a smoother touch. Our golden needle is grown on Tai Mu Mountain. A unique and new tea, Golden Needle is so named for its long narrow golden tipped leaves. Golden Needle is a rich full-bodied red tea with a rose-flavored finish.

 

Tangerine Blossom Red Tea

Tangerine Blossom Red Tea Leaves

Made from fermented white tea leaves and tangy tangerine blossoms added towards the end of the fermentation process. A pleasant, citrus flavor complements the deeper nutty Red Tea base.
