Downy Pearls

#6128
Silvery tips carefully shaped into small round pearls. Compare quality by looking at the proportion of bud to stem in the wet leaves. Made in spring when new tea is harvested; no jasmine scenting.

Natural Osmanthus Green Tea

#1910
Natural osmanthus blossoms are added to green tea; the scenting process is similar to that of jasmine tea processing. The bright blossoms add visual appeal to the tea, and the flavor is softly sweet rather than cloying.

Pi Lo Chun, Premium

#2001
Special grade, top of the line. Hand-crafted to produce gentle spirals. Downy tips very evident. When the tea leaves are still warm after de-enzyming, small mounds are rolled by hand in three stages. The delicate, pliant leaves are thus transformed into the familiar spiral shape. Shanghai's favorite.

Rainflower Needles

#2002
Deep green, short, pine needle-like leaves distinguish this little known tea. Rainflower Terrace in Nanjing (Jiangsu province) holds historical significance; the area is relatively high and is known for its colorful agate stones. Classic green with prominent sweet notes.

Tian Mu Qing Ding

#2005
One of Zhejiang's best know greens, from Mount Tian Mu.

Huang Shan Maofeng

#2011
Fat, golden green buds, memorably sweet, delicate flavor. Association with this scenic locale adds cachet.

Du Yun

#2016
From little known Guizhou province in the southwest, one of China’s "Big 10 Famous Teas". Very neat, finely curled leaves.

Yong Xi Huo Qing

#2018
Anhui Pearls, a signature Anhui green; shaped like Gunpowder but far superior plucking rolled into classic pearl shape.

Mount Jiu Hua (9 Summit) Maofeng

#2019
From another of Anhui's famed mountains.

Tai Ping Hou Kui

#2020
Very long budsets; each one is individually pressed by hand. Bright green leaves yield a delicate brew.

Lu'an Melon Seed

#2022
One of China’s 10 Famous Teas, our Lu’an is hand-rolled, not machine-rolled. Some may find it puzzling that a fairly expensive tea like this is not made from buds; in fact, growers separate the buds from the 2nd and 3rd leaves by hand and then process those to make Lu'an (which is named for a county in Anhui province).

Mist on the Gorges

#2036
From the Yangtze River Gorges area. Budsets give a delicate, sweet flavor with a long finish.

Organic Yangtze Green Maofeng

#2039A
Dark, fairly long leaves; cup is cleanly sweet, not overly assertive.

Snow Sprouting

#2041
Introduced last spring, this tea is plucked just once a year. The leaves are downy soft in appearance; the silver-white hues of the dry tea provide a wonderful teaching opportunity to educate your customers about white teas and green teas. (This one is a green tea.) The cup is notably sweet.

Organic Silver Maofeng

#2048A
So named for the many silvery buds in this green.

Green Silk Maofeng

#2056

Introduced last spring, this tea is plucked just once a year. The leaves are downy soft in appearance; the silver-white hues of the dry tea provide a wonderful teaching opportunity to educate your customers about white teas and green teas. The cup is notably sweet. Single buds, and bud with one leaf (a budset yields more flavor than just a single bud).

Snow Buds

#2061

Very attractive, open leafed green tea showing plentiful silver tips. Unlike most green teas, Snow Buds undergoes minimal rolling.

Snow Monkey

#2064
Thick white strands among darker green leaves; slightly twisted. Budsets show after brewing. Rich-tasting green but without harshness or bite.

Organic Ming Mei

#2068A

Emerald Pearls

#2070

Early single-plucking tea from southwestern China; leaves resemble balled Tie Guan Yin, unfurling to produce a truly satisfying cup. A great fit for gongfu pots, rare for a green tea.

Rising Phoenix

#2072

For those who truly love China Greens, this is a nice one to try: interesting leaf shape, with prominent chestnutty aroma and flavor that do not dissipate quickly. Long sweet finish. Given their minimalist processing, Green teas tend to be subtle and restrained; this one is a standout.

Organic Mist on the River

#2074A
From the Yangtze River region; good proportion of silvery strands.

Ming Qian Maojian

#2076

Very early spring, well crafted, exemplary Maojian.

An Ji Bai Pian

#2080
In this unusual varietal, the uniform green budsets turn a pale shade of ivory after steeping.

Curled Dragon Silver Tip

#2081

One of my personal top five teas, this green expresses hand-crafting (fine rolling and curling), high quality plucking (inspect the infused leaves), and the chestnutty taste that marks the best of China greens.

Organic Orchid Dew

#2082A

An organic green from a Japanese cultivar transplanted in China; deep, refined green flavor.

Silver Dew

#2083

Very limited production from early spring; high labor costs in producing this wispy, silvery tea. Sweet full flavor.

Purple Bamboo

#2084

A classic green from Zhejiang.

1000 Islands

#2085

From the 1000 Islands area in Zhejiang.

Zhejiang High Mountain Green (Jiu Ken)

#2086

From the eastern part of the province.

Bubbling Spring Rolled Green

#2087

Rolled into small pellets, this tea is very different from Gunpowder. When brewed, pellets are transformed to reveal tender yellow-green budsets. Fresh, sweet flavor; very drinkable.

A premium Maofeng, this tea embodies the reasons for drinking green tea. Tantalizingly sweet for a green, this tea has refreshing, chestnutty notes.

#2261A Special, Organic

Lichee Green Tea

#1905
A familiar flavor but made with green tea; also refreshing as an iced tea.

Natural Osmanthus Green Tea, Special Grade
