A Tea Expert
If your friend or loved one is very knowledgeable about loose tea and savors more exotic blends, try one of our specialty teas. Because of the owner’s connections to tea growers across the world, many of our premium blends ship directly from the tea grower, cutting out the middle man.
This hand-picked, high-grown formosa oolong uses only the top part of the tea plant with two or three fresh leaves. High Peak Oolong has distinct and mellow floral notes reminiscent of orchids and can be re-steeped 4 or more times. Our 2013 harvest of this robust tea house classic has just arrived, so get yours soon! Order High Peak Oolong
Our premium New Dragonwell, harvested in the early spring of 2013, comes directly from tea farms near Hangzhou in the Zhejiang Province- the first and best producers of Long Jing.
Known as Ming Qian or pre-Qingming Long Jing, this tea consists only of the most tender spring shoots, hand-picked before the Qingming festival. The delicate leaves yield a flavorful, full-bodied cup, fresh like a spring breeze and slightly nutty in flavor.
It is best taken unsweetened, and we recommend you smell the beautiful aroma before enjoying this highly praised national tea of China! Order Dragonwell
A staff favorite and one of our highest quality oolong teas, Buddha’s Favor has a light and naturally floral taste. This fragrant and delicate tea can be enjoyed over several infusions – as many as seven or more! The subtle taste, the many health benefits ranging from aiding digestion to burning fat to reducing cholesterol, and the high number of possible re-steepings make this tea an excellent value. Order Buddha’s Favor
