  1. no.132 Gyokuro

    no.132 Gyokuro

    $36.00 + Shipping

    For certain, this tea is the noblest among the Japanese teas. A lot of elegance and a dark leaf of magnificent workmanship. Hand plucked once a year only in specific regions of Japan. Approximately three weeks before plucking this special tea, the bushes are shaded. Consequently, the reduced light results in a higher chlorophyll concentration in the tealeaves (which contributes to the intensive green color) and a lower tannin content giving the tea a sweeter milder flavor and fruity fragrance. For this reason the tea is also partly offered as "shadow tea". Early flavor impressions of pears and cream give way to a lively, pungent finish. Learn More

    Very special hand-made tea from Anhui Province in China. Single tender green tea serving and buds neatly tied into beautiful roses by skilled artisans. Truly a work of art. Watch the beautiful serving come to life once placed in the water. One rosette is good for one cup and can be infused up to 3 times. The result is a mild and mellow refreshing taste. A stunning display tea! Learn More
  3. no.102 Taiping Hou Kui

    no.102 Taiping Hou Kui

    $28.00 + Shipping

    This extremely rare and special tea of long single leaves is considered the highest-grade tea from the Anhui region. Although not officially a scented tea, the leaves absorb the scent of millions of orchids that grows wild in the mountains as the tea bushes are beginning to open their new buds. Picked in the early morning, each leaf is then pressed flat during the drying process. Mild soft taste with some sweetness, and a subtle orchid flavor. Learn More
