SPECIAL RESERVE COLLECTION GREEN TEA
Don't miss out on this extraordinary tea!
Highly prized for its delicate taste and superior antioxidants, which are a result of the tea leaves coming from wild tea bushes, and also because of painstaking ancient artisanal methods that maximize nutrient value and retain the tea’s unusually large leaf size. Grown & harvested in remote wilderness areas of Anhui China.
The leaves are said to resemble a dancing monkey tail when steeping. Brew in a glass teapot or clear travel mug to enjoy their appearance. One leaf makes up to 4 cups of tea & can be re-infused several times. A packet contains 20-30 tea leaves.
Our Special Reserve Tea Collection celebrates the art of tea craftsmanship, supports biodiversity, the environment and small scale tea farmers. Requiring great skill to produce, many of the teas in this collection can take a Tea Maker over 10 years to learn and by purchasing these teas you’re helping keep these traditions and unique tea varietals alive and thriving.
Exposure to light, heat and air causes flavour loss as well as the nutrient value of tea to decline, so be sure to store this tea in the package it came in. Always reseal tightly after opening.
To maximize the taste & aroma experience of this exquisite tea:
> brew & serve it Chinese Tea Ceremony style in a light to medium weight porcelain teapot & cups
> sip from a thin, curved lip teacup or gaiwan (lidded teacup)
