This collection is an opportunity to taste the five tea types without any added flavoring.
The collection is boxed, labeled, and tied with a ribbon.
White Peony: A beautiful introduction to white tea, this tea consists of tea leaves and a few leaf buds and is the least processed of the five categories of tea. Ingredients: China white tea
Green Needle: This Chinese organic green tea is shaped into needles and wok-fired to prevent oxidation, maintain the green color, and develop a distinctive chestnut flavor. Ingredients: China green tea
Kukicha: Unlike Chinese green teas, our Japanese kukicha (stem green tea) is lightly steamed to prevent oxidation, which creates a fresh flavor of edamame. Ingredients: Japan green tea
Jade Goddess: This Chinese oolong tea is rolled into spherical shapes and lightly oxidized, which results in floral notes of jasmine and orchid. Ingredients: China oolong tea
Amber Goddess: The leaves of this tea are from the same area as Jade Goddess, shaped similarly but more oxidized and toasted, resulting in the taste of baked bread. Ingredients: China oolong tea
Golden Needles Imperial: One of our favorite black teas, this handpicked Chinese tea consists entirely of leaf buds that are shaped and allowed to oxidize fully, giving this tea a creamy and complex flavor profile. Ingredients: China black tea
Keemun Black Label: The small tea leaves used to make this full-bodied Chinese black tea are tightly twisted and fully oxidized, resulting in a bold tea with a slight smoky note. Ingredients: China black tea
Silk Road Pu'er Cake: The Silk Road was a trade route connecting China with Central Asia and Europe, and tea was one of the products traded. This tea is a cooked pu'er with substantial body and velvety notes of morel mushroom and sweet tobacco. Ingredients: China dark tea
