If Origin is not foremost for this type of tea, these teas come from gardens just kilometers away from Darjeeling, with the same flavor profile and  are excellent values. Pricing reflects the time of plucking.

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

Tea Leaves

Organic Green Tranquility Maofeng

#2180A
Like Clouds & Mist, this is another gateway tea towards better quality Greens; leaf appearance is a standard, finely rolled "eyebrow" shaped tea, but the flavor surpasses Chunmees.

Tea Leaves

Finest leaf; good, slightly smoky flavor.

ORGANIC WHITE TEAS

 
Tea Leaves

Organic Silver Needle

#5511A

Comprised entirely of buds with silvery white down. Also known as Flowery White Pekoe or Yin Zhen. No question about the high quality of the tea material, yet I have wished for more flavor. However, this batch exhibits a floral note that I have rarely encountered in this tea, and it is truly a delight to have taste matching the tea's appearance.

Organic Jasmine, Special Grade

More petals showing; slender longish leaves mingled with tips. Fewer flowers remain in the tea than in lower grades. Delicate flavor.

Tea Leaves

Organic Jasmine Downy Pearls

#6138A

Silvery tips carefully shaped into small round pearls. Compare quality by looking at the proportion of bud to stem in the wet leaves. Quality of plucking and scenting account for price difference; the standard grade is a great value. (Beware of jasmine pearls that have one or two long strands wrapped around a core of broken tea leaves.)

ORGANIC OOLONG TEAS

As tea crafters themselves are wont to say, Oolong is a “fussy” tea to make. Withered leaves are tossed and shaken to bruise the edges of the leaves and to begin oxidation. The extent of the shaking, of oxidation and drying is variable, making this a complex tea in the best sense. From the Light/Fragrant style that shows green-tinged rolled leaves to the more robust style that shows dark, thick leaves, Oolongs provide something for everyone. Pale golden cups offer floral notes; medium oxidized teas brew up an apricot-colored cup with layers of flavor; deep amber brews yield smooth, deeply aromatic cups.

 
Tea Leaves

Organic Floral Oolong (Nepal)

#4016A

Good value for this hand-rolled, semi-oxidized tea; closest comparison would be a Taiwan Silver Tip.

Tea Leaves

Organic Shui Hsien Oolong

#4390A
Described as having a natural orchid-like flavor; good for many infusions with a lingering fragrance; clear, bright, amber color. Friendly finish without fire.

Tea Leaves

Organic Oolong, Medium Roast (semi balled)

#4408A

Light amber in the cup; high aroma and enough flavor make this a good cold beverage too.

ORGANIC PU'ER TEAS

A unique aged tea, Pu'er is made from Yunnan tea and stored to age after oxidation. The most popular cooked Pu'er teas are oxidized and then aged. Pu'er is also compressed into cakes, bricks, "bowls" (tuo cha), and other shapes. Molding the leaves requires a brief injection of steam; this small step alters the character of the finished compressed tea, and Pu'er connoisseurs prefer these over loose Pu'er. "Uncooked" Pu'er begins as non-oxidized tea, and the leaves undergo slight, natural oxidation as they age. For compressed teas, break off small pieces to brew, or steam the entire cake/brick to loosen the leaves; spread the leaves out and allow them to dry completely, then store in a lidded container.
