The Jade Journey collection offers a taste of green teas from the major tea producing areas: China, Japan and India. Jade Journey includes 1 ounce each of the following teas:
Organic Green Darjeeling - This beautiful, long-leaf green tea has a naturally sweet taste and a light floral note that is characteristic of teas from India's Darjeeling district.
Fukamushi Sencha - Known as "deep-steamed" tea, this second flush sencha brews a deep lime-green cup with a bold, rich flavor. The leaves are steamed longer than standard sencha, resulting in a more intense flavor and less bitterness. Makes a great iced tea.
Organic Emerald Mist - Produced in early spring, these bright green leaves are oven-baked to produce a fresh and flavorful green tea with a smooth, buttery texture, mild taste and chestnut aroma. Highly recommended for the everyday cup.
Organic Yellow Buds - Yellow Buds is a rare yellow tea with a fragrant, sweet corn aroma and refreshing, nutty flavor. This tea has been famous since the Tang Dynasty and was used frequently as an Imperial tribute tea.
