GREEN TEAS

DRAGON WELL Also known as Lung Ching, this is arguably one of China's most treasured teas. Our organic leaves are beautifully crafted with an aromatic cup that is sweet, vegetative, and distinctly nutty.

GUNPOWDER From the Jiangxi Province of China, our small pellet-shaped leaves unfurl gracefully with the addition of hot water. It is a memorable organic tea with a slightly smoky aroma and lingering finish.

JASMINE Our Chinese growers mix mild, whole leaf green tea with fresh blossoms, most of which are painstakingly removed after surrendering their ethereal scent to this delicately sweet organic tea.

DECAF GREEN* Invigorating green tea with a vegetal, smooth flavor. Gently decaffeinated using carbon dioxide, the only certified organic method.

HERBAL TEAS

PEPPERMINT* From the fertile volcanic hillsides of the Pacific Northwest of the United States, we seek out the best organic crops for their lively, cooling aroma and sweetly spicy flavor.

ROOIBOS* From South Africa where indigenous mountain inhabitants first discovered it, we selected this organic offering for its earthy aroma and natural character suggestive of vanilla and honey.

YERBA MATE Naturally rich in antioxidants, our organic untoasted, green loose leaf has a distinctive woody flavor, invigorating body, and gently stimulating effect.

CRANBERRY HIBISCUS* Tea drinkers of all ages will delight in this sophisticated blend of refreshing fruit flavors. Tangy hibiscus, cranberries and rosehips are carefully balanced with naturally sweet currants, elderberries, and rooibos for a luscious herbal infusion. Its rich, ruby red color and tantalizing fruits will brighten any meal.

SPECIALTY TEAS

WHITE TEA Minimal handling guards against bruising the organic hand-plucked leaves and buds during the production of this White Peony style. Ours is quiet with floral notes and lingering sweetness.

TWIG TEA This traditional Japanese beverage is made from organic twigs and stems of the tea plant. Our grower ages the harvest for three years before roasting to develop the soothing, richly woody flavor.
