Green
  • Sencha  A pale yellow green Japanese tea tending light liquoring and smooth with reasonable depth and body. Sencha has long, slender, deep green leaves and is often used in Japanese tea ceremonies. The aroma is mellow and the flavor is naturally sweet, brothy and vegetal. 175ºF / 80ºC (Steep* 1-2 min)
  • Dragonwell (Lung Ching) China’s most popular tea has a sweet, rounded flavor, perhaps reminiscent of freshly roasted white corn. Full, nutty and buttery texture and pleasant dry finish. A truly satisfying cup of green tea. 175ºF / 80ºC (Steep* 1-2 min)
  • Genmaicha A specialty Japanese green tea (normally a high grade of Japan Sencha) that is blended with fire-toasted rice. The fresh vegetative character of the green tea is imparted on the cup but it is tempered with the bakey-like character of the rice. There is a natural sweetness and almost chewy character to the finish of this tea.  During the firing of the rice, it is not uncommon for rice to ‘pop’ not unlike popcorn, hence the pet name ‘popcorn-tea’. 175ºF / 80ºC (Steep* 1-2 min)
  • Jasmine Dragon Tears is an excellent green tea with an aromatic Jasmine flavour. It is made from the top two leaves and a bud of new season growth. The liquor is light and the cup has a hint of sweetness. An exceptional Jasmine tea! 175ºF / 80ºC (Steep* 1-2 min)
  • Formosa Gunpowder A Taiwan green tea with strength and captivating green tea taste. The tealeaves are specially selected for quality, size and style. The tight curl gives gunpowder a long shelf life – a prized attribute. 175ºF / 80ºC (Steep* 1-2 min)
  • Chunmee is a green tea that is sweet, with hints of an almost Sencha like clover-butteriness, grassy notes and a long exceptionally smooth finish. 175ºF / 80ºC (Steep* 1-2 min)
  • Hojicha is a Japanese Green tea that is rendered brown by roasting Bancha (a summer crop tea, harvested after Sencha) tea leaves. A customer favorite, with a toasty nutty flavor and slightly mesquite note. Earthy and warm quality, soothing, clean finish. 175ºF / 80ºC (Steep* 1-2 min)

* Steeping times are suggested and will vary by personal preference. 

Oolong
  • Quangzhou Milk Oolong is a traditional oolong tea with a naturally enriched milky sweetness. Green Oolong leaves fill the cup with a yellow-gold liquor giving a creamy, smooth flavor that suspends into a sweet long aftertaste with floral high-notes. 195ºF / 90ºC (Steep* 2-3 min)
  • Ti Quan Yin (Iron Goddess of Mercy) A full-bodied Oolong tea with tightly encased pellets that unfurl and steep into a dark green-golden liquor that offers a distinctly floral, orchid-like flavor. True to its name, Tie Kwan Yin is sweet and mellow in its aftertaste, inviting an earthly state of Grace into each divine cup. 195ºF / 90ºC (Steep* 2-3 min).
  •  Formosa Oolong One of the world’s most sought after and revered cups, this premier plucking of special grade, mountain grown tea is prized for its large leaves, inviting liquor, roasted aroma and assertive peach finish. 195ºF / 90ºC (Steep* 2-3 min)

Pu-Erh

  •  Caramel Pu-Erh A truly unique blend of flavors of Scottish Caramel and Pu-erh Tea. Pu-erh exhibits a musty, earthy character – but when combined with the sweetness of caramel and toffee, it delivers a sweet, burnt, sugary flavor that’s a perfect blend. This tea is like dessert in a cup with a decadent finish. This tea is made with luxury Pu-erh, butterscotch pieces, almond pieces, and natural flavors. 212ºF / 100 ºC  (Steep* 3-5 min)
