This All About Green Tea Gift Box contains the following green teas:
Long Jing Dragon Well is an ultimate classic green tea, said to be the national drink of China. Grown in Hangzhou, it possesses a light golden liquor with a grassy aroma. The fresh flavours are vegetal and nutty with a mouth watering, creamy finish and no astringency.
Wu Yi Shan Bi Luo Chun is a complex green tea from the famous Wu Yi Mountain area of Fujian Province in China. The name translates as ‘Green Snail Spring’ and refers to the shape of the leaves and the spring (March 2017) harvest time. The liquor is light and crisp with floral, vegetal notes and a savoury yet fruity touch.
Bitaco Colombian Green is an intriguing green tea from a relatively unknown tea growing region. Dark green twisted leaves produce a light yellow liquor with a slight floral and vegetal aroma. The flavour has a unique and distinct fennel and aniseed taste with perfumed floral notes.
Nu Er Huan Jasmine Girl Rings is an exceptionally made jasmine scented ‘art tea’ in the shape of small silver rings. Beautiful and strong jasmine fragrance gives way to a lighter sweeter scent on repeated brewing. The liquor is light and smooth with sweet, floral and slightly fruity notes.
Matcha Genmaicha consists of fine sencha leaves, toasted brown rice and superior grade matcha. Produced to organic standards in Japan, it is known as ‘popcorn tea’ for its distinctive and unusual flavour. The taste is a little creamy, with a distinctive toasted corn (popcorn) and vegetal profile.
Assam Brahmaputra Green is a uniquely smoky green tea from Bhartia Tea Estate in Assam. Large twisted leaves have a very dark green appearance and a smoky fruity aroma. The golden liquor has only slight astringency, with savoury yet refreshing notes of smoky tart fruits.
