Journey through the tea lands of Asia with an assortment of teas. Our Asian Adventure collection includes 1 ounce each of the following teas:
Yunnan Golden Buds - Yunnan has been a tea-producing region for over 1,700 years and the tea plant is thought to have originated in the area. Known as “Jin Ya” in China, this rare, top-grade Yunnan is picked in the early spring when the tea plants are budding with the year’s new growth. Yunnan Golden Buds brews a rich, flavorful cup with lingering notes of honey and spice.
Organic Dragon Well - One of China's "10 famous teas", Dragon Well (Lung Jing) green tea has been prized since the Tang Dynasty for its jade green color, mellow taste, floral aroma and flat, shiny leaves. This handcrafted, pan-fired tea is refreshing and cooling with a nutty flavor reminiscent of roasted chestnuts and a sweet aftertaste. A revitalizing all-day tea or digestive after a heavy meal.
Organic 2nd Flush Darjeeling - Grown high in the foothills of the Himalayan mountain range, this classic black tea has a clean taste with a hint of muscatel grapes and a fruity aroma.
Kukicha Supreme - Made from early spring harvested leaves and tender stems, Kukicha is a fragrant and flavorful tea with a fresh, savory taste and sweet, mellow finish. Known as "twig tea", our Kukicha Supreme uses only the higher-grade stems from the manufacture of sencha. Highly recommended with meals.
