Incredible pan-fried Korean Sejak harvest green tea made with great skill. This high grade is called Jakseol,which translates as Sparrow's Tongue. This particular tea was made by Dong Cheon, the same wonderful organic co-op that makes our Nokcha green tea. The difference between the two teas is that Sejak is the 2nd highest grade of tea in Korea and is made with spring leaves from the third week of April, and our Nokcha is an early summer tea harvested at the end of May. Both teas, however, are harvested from old wild Hadong varietal trees growing on the famous Jirishan mountain. You'll find this tea to be very intense, fresh and vegetal, something between a fragrant pan-fried Chinese green and a full-bodied shaded japanese green tea, especially if you play with water temperature! We suggest you try brewing it both ways: at 75º (45sec; 80sec; 2 min) and at 60º (1.5min; 2.5min; 3.5min)

Excepcional hand-picked chinese green tea from highlands of Simao. Its name “Cui Ming” means “Bright Emerald”. A name that is probably meant to evoke the incredible bright emerald color of the leaves once they're steeped. The green and silvery leaves and buds were picked in March at the very beginning of the picking season and hand-processed with an emphasis on allowing minimal oxidation to give this tea its very special character, aroma, taste and appearance. You'll find the leaves to be uniform, full-bodied, tasty with fruity notes and sweet in the mouth!

Islam may prohibit alcohol, but certainly not tea… Organic Moroccan Mint tea, which Moroccans jokingly refer to as “Moroccan Whisky” is a national icon for warm hospitality (as tea is in most countries). It is prepared using Chinese Gunpowder green tea, fresh mint, and a lot of sugar. The key to serving it is to pour each cup from a high elevation so you get a nice head of foam at the top of the cup. Our Moroccan Whisky blends organic gunpowder tea with two different types of dry mint, so you can still get a fresh minty taste even if you can’t get your hands on fresh mint. And if you can… No problem! It’ll be just be twice as good!
Preparation: 4 spoons of Moroccan Whisky Mix for a Moroccan teapot, 6 spoons of sugar (8-10 would be more traditional), a branch of mint and boiling water. Let it sit for 5 minutes before stirring, then serve from some height to achieve foam. Traditionally one serves a cup and puts it back into the teapot 3 times before finally serving guests.

Early Spring Long Jing green tea is probably China's most revered tea. Its leaves are jade green with hints of yellow, folded flat in a very distinctive “bird's tongue” shape achieved by skillfully pan-frying the leaves in a wok. The leaves of this Long Jing are from the Long Jing Quntizhong varietal growing in Chunan, near West Lake. The leaves come from trees that are over 100 years old, which have been allowed to grow tall and now stand at 1.5 meters. This tea brews a full, thick and oily cup with a sweet aftertaste.

Excellent organic green tea cultivated in partial shade in the Kagoshima Mountains, using tea leaves of the Okumidori cultivar that were shaded for the last 14 days prior to harvest. Kabuse, or “covered” tea, is a Japanese green tea that is grown under a shield of straw or cotton, similar to gyokuro tea. The shading process inhibits photosynthesis, meaning the tea plant must survive on its own store of nutrients. This changes the chemical composition of the leaves, reducing catechin (responsible for bitterness) and extracting L-Theanine, improving its sweet flavor and aromatic properties. The main difference between gyokuro and kabuse is the type of shield and its duration. Kabuse tea is partially shaded for 3-14 days and gyokuro is completely shaded for 20-30 days.

Organic gunpowder green tea is an internationally famous green tea from Zhejiang province, China made of leaves that are rolled into tiny round pellets. Typically this tea is blended with nana mint to create the famous “Moroccan Whisky”. We offer an organic certified high-quality gunpowder tea that can be enjoyed for its own sake if you wish. The origin of name “Gunpowder” may come from its appearance resembling actual gunpowder, or from the fact that this tightly rolled pellet “explodes” into a longer leaf when infused, or because of its often times smoky aroma and taste.
