15 full leaf pyramids
Fine twisted young leaf that resembles a chun mee style but interspersed with silvery down-covered buds. The aroma of this Fujian green is quietly floral but gives way to a smokiness, reminiscent of gunpowder but not nearly as bold. The cup is light, yet smoky with a semi buttery mouthfeel. In the finish a dry white grape note, and lingering smoke.

Green Tea | Moderate caffeine | Steep at 180° for 3 minutes.

Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose-tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavor in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavor of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

Silver is one of the seven metals of antiquity, alongside gold, copper, tin, lead, iron, and mercury. Used for sculpture, coins, and jewelry since ancient times, it is now used for anything from solar panels to electronics and even water filtration. Though silver is sometimes associated with second best, à la silver medals, in folklore it reigns supreme as the ideal solution for werewolves, vampires, witches, and more. It is from this idea that we get the term “silver bullet,” which refers to the perfect solution for any given problem, for example, quieting your inner tea monster with Silver Sprout.
