This harmonious medley of organic green tea, oolong, jasmine and rose petals is sweet and enticing. It has bright floral aromatics and a smooth finish.

Japanese green teas are best brewed between 170-180 degrees for 1 - 2 minutes. Chinese green teas are best brewed between 175-185 for 3 - 4 minutes.

Scented teas should be brewed according to the base tea leaves. White and green scented teas may be brewed at 185 degrees for 3 minutes. Black scented teas may be brewed at 205 degrees for 3-5 minutes. We recommend to brew chai teas at 205 degrees for 5-7 minutes to yield a strong cup that will hold nicely with honey and milk.

About Green Tea

What is Green Tea?

Green tea, like white tea, is made from buds and young leaves. After the initial withering phase the tea is rolled or twisted to release the essential oils of the leaves. This additional handling causes the leaf to begin to oxidize, a process which if left alone, would produce black tea. In order to stop this process at the right time (roughly 30% oxidation) the producer introduces heat in one of two ways: with steam (the Japanese style) or with dry heat (the Chinese style). These two different styles produce two broad types of green tea. The Japanese style is dark green, glossy, and deeply vegetal while the Chinese style is lighter in color and introduces an elegant toastiness to the tea.

About Scented Tea

What is Scented Tea?

Blended or scented tea, as opposed to herbal tea, is based upon the leaf of the tea plant, camellia sinensis. Other ingredients such as flowers, dried fruits, and essential oils are then added to achieve the desired flavor.
