Fresh Loose Leaf Green Tea

Green Tea

The least oxidized of teas, green varietals offer flavors ranging from vegetal and cream-like to toasty, nutty, naturally sweet, and clean.

We adhere to the standard that the “before the rain” early harvest greens, are the most nuanced and finest of the annual harvest.

In each green, we look for a rich, fresh color (se), bright aroma (xiang), delicious taste (wei) and uniform shape (xing).

We source our greens from farms and tea companies and relationships we have developed and nurtured since the early 1990s. We source green teas in Fujian, Zhejiang, Guangdong, Anhui and Yunnan provinces. From Japan, we offer a selection of Ichiban-cha Senchas.
