Green Tea

Green Tea

Green teas, of which there are thousands of varieties, are produced by a variety of complex methods but are all firstly steamed to prevent the oxidation of the leaf which would turn the tea into "black" tea. The very finest types produce gentle, subtle, refreshing liquor with alleged, although now largely undisputed health benefits, due in part to the high quantity of antioxidants, up to twenty times that of vitamin E, found in the leaves. This is why green tea is said to be very reviving. We carry all of the famous green teas from each tea growing country, they are acclaimed not just for their special quality but also for their provenance and history and should not be confused with the many thousand more common varieties. These teas should be carefully brewed in filtered water between 70-90c and the rich flavour content of the higher qualities means the same leaves can be used 2-5 times.

  1. Gyokuro Kimi Ga Yo Ruler of the World Green Tea

    Gyokuro Kimi Ga Yo Ruler of the World Green Tea

    Kimi Ga Yo, known as 'Ruler of the World', is arguably Japan's very best Gyokuro tea. The tea bushes from which Gyokuro is made are shaded for a month before picking. This has the effect of increasing the Chlorophyll levels in the tea and gives Gyokuro its distinctive character. It has fine, feathery leaves of an emerald green hue. It has an intense flavour and beautiful, lemon green infusion. The tea is so full of essential tea oils that the infusion is cloudy, as the oils emulsify in the water. Learn More

It has fine, feathery leaves of an emerald green hue. It has a rich, sweet, velvety infusion and beautiful, lemon green colour. The tea is so full of essential tea oils that the infusion is cloudy, as the oils emulsify in the water. Learn More

  3. Anji Bai Cha King April Snow Green Tea

    Anji Bai Cha King April Snow Green Tea

    Grown in a remote mountain area near the Bamboo forest featured in the film 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon', this is currently the most sought after tea in China, where most of it is kept because it is considered to be unique. It is grown from cuttings of one of the only four surviving giant white tea trees. Whilst it is a 'White' tea it is processed as a green tea. This gives it a deeper flavour than Yin Zhen for example. The leaf looks slim and feather like with an almost white colour just prior to picking in the spring. This is expressed as the distinctive pale yellow-green in the dry leaf, not the more usual green seen in most green teas and in lower grades of Anji. It has a wonderful fragrance and pale lemon, crystal clear liquor. We buy the finest grade, which has more amino acids than other green teas and the best flavour we have experienced in any green or white tea. Learn More

  9. Blue Jasmine Flowering Green Tea

    Blue Jasmine Flowering Green Tea

    This flowering tea is composed of blue butterfly flowers, which slowly turn the infusion a green-blue as the green tea leaves unfurl to reveal jasmine and butterfly blossoms amidst the green tea bouquet. They were created originally as a tribute to the great mountains where the tea gardens are found and are made with great skill and care by hand. The real dried flowers reveal themselves dramatically and gracefully when infused. They are also known as 'Blooming', 'Artistic' and 'Display' teas. Ours are made using the highest grade of silvery buds. Learn More
