A wonderful introduction to the wide range of Chinese green teas. Each sample makes about 8-10 cups of tea. This set includes (though subject to change without notification):
sampler boxes -
jasmine chun hao - A classic jasmine tea from Fujian, China, infused with the delicate scent of night-blooming jasmine flowers. Sweet perfumy cup, notes of warmed sugar, slightly toasty like a fresh biscuit. Light, refreshing and not overwhelmingly floral.
white monkey - Green tea from the slopes of the Taimu Mountains in Fujian, China. The delicate, unopened buds appear perfectly white against the young, opened green leaves. Warm colored liquor with a fresh, almost wildflower sweet scent and slightly dry finish.
gunpowder - A classic green tea from Zhejiang province, China. Gunpowder, as the name implies, is made up of leaves hand-rolled into tiny pellets. These resemble gunpowder, and give this tea its distinct name. Full-bodied cup with a hint of smokiness.
green pekoe - Green tea from Fujian, China. In professional terms, 'pekoe' is a grade of tea; the size of the leaf. Our Green Pekoe is a lovely tea for any day: pale liquor, pleasant aroma of fresh artichokes or okra. Slightly toasty, balanced astringency.
