Green Teas

  • Gunpowder Tea Gunpowder Tea

    Boom, pow! The name of this strong green tea from China comes from the fact that the tea leaves are rolled up into tiny little balls that "explode" when splashed with hot water. Rolling tea leaves into these pellets renders the leaves less susceptible to physical damage and allows them to retain more of their flavor and aroma. And what a flavor! This tea has a a distinctive nutty/oak taste and produces a dark green cup. Blend it with fresh mint, sugar and steaming hot water to make your own traditional Moroccan mint tea!

  • Young Hyson Tea Young Hyson Tea

    Hyson is a Chinese green tea that comes to you as twisted leaves that are long, thin and unfurl slowly to offer a fragrant and somewhat astringent green taste. (Think dry wine.) Hyson (pronounced hi-tshun in Chinese) was named for an English tea merchant, but amusingly, it means "flourishing spring" in Chinese - and indeed, this tea is picked before the rainy season to embody the warm, sunny, fresh green character you would expect from a springtime experience!
