The combination of Jasmine flowers & tealeaves is a Chinese tradition. High quality green tea leaves have been rested with fresh Jasmine flowers to absorb the scent and the outcome is a soft, slightly sweet and heady floral tea.

Pai Mu Tan White Tea

Light, honey-sweet, grassy & floral

White tea is the least handled of all the tea types.

After harvest, the tea leaves are laid to dry under the sun and once dry, the tea is ready! 

What you taste is a tea in its most purist form.

Harvesting to make white tea only happens in the springtime when the leaves are still young & small. 

The taste is floral & delicate which makes it a refreshing drink to enjoy on warm days hot or iced.

  • Variety Packet 15g
  • € 4,00 incl.btw
  • 18 Infusions
  • From 11c per cup (when twice infusing)

White Monkey Green Tea

Delicate, fresh & refreshing

Every year at the beginning of spring, high in the mountains of Fujian, China; when the tealeaves are still young & sometimes still in bud, this wonderful tea is harvested by hand.

The leaves are full, long & slightly twisted. They have a beautiful light green colour with glimmers of silver & fine white hair. The fine hair is a sign of a young leaf.

We highly recommend this tea for all green tea lovers & especially for those looking to start drinking green tea.

Japanese Sakura Cherry Green Tea

Heady cherry & refreshing

Each year at spring time across Japan, China & Taiwan, something very special happens to the landscape.

Hundreds & thousands of cherry blossom trees are in bloom & the land becomes a soft blanket of pink.

The aroma of this tea is a heady cherry followed by a vanilla-like sweetness on a light green tea base. 

Rose petals compliment the beautiful, emerald green colour of the tea leaves making for a cheery cup of tea!
