Oriental Green | Green tea · no oxidation · unroasted
A delicious Taiwanese green tea with a beautiful floral aroma and a sweet finish. The gently grassy infusion is packed with flavor and fills your palate. We find it most suitable for productive mornings alongside a big healthy breakfast.
Golden Lily | Oolong tea · low oxidation · light roast
Made with milk cultivar (or Jinxuan), this tea is creamy, vegetal, and light bodied. We like it for the start of the day or as an elegant early afternoon tea break with a butter shortbread.
Oriental Beauty | Oolong tea · high oxidation · unroasted
This tea has an aroma of honey nectar and has been a favorite since the 19th century. A great starter oolong for black tea enthusiasts. It is a great tea to wake up to in colder months and a nice compliment to any creamy dessert.
Frozen Summit | Oolong tea · medium oxidation · medium roast
Nutty and toasty, Frozen Summit (or Dong Ding) is especially heart warming in the Fall. Slightly less caffeinated than the others, it is meant to ease the nerves for late afternoon or evening teatime.
Jade Rouge | Black tea · full oxidation · unroasted
A classic Taiwanese black tea that's bold and juicy. This tea variety is known for its natural camphor aroma that brings joy and happiness. We like it during colder months so it can fill our days with brightness and good mood.
