All tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant. How the leaves of the plant are processed and their level of contact with oxygen determines the type of tea. The more processing the leaves go through, the darker the leaves become, resulting in a distinctive color and taste characteristic. There are four main varietals of tea: black, green, white, and oolong. Tea contains substances called flavonoids, which are powerful antioxidant polyphenols. Antioxidant polyphenols help protect the body's cells from damage due to harmful molecules called free radicals. Regardless of the processing method, black, green, white and oolong teas all contain polyphenols. In fact, tea ranks as high as or higher than many fruits and vegetables in the ORAC score, a score that measures antioxidant potential of plant-based foods. Green tea is a variety of tea that has undergone minimal oxidation during processing, resulting inunique catechins, especially epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). Green tea has half the caffeine of black tea and varies widely in appearance and taste. Our green tea captures the fresh clean air of high mountain tea gardens and defines how green tea should taste. Fresh harvested leaves are skillfully steamed, rolled and pan-fired in a wok for the ultimate cup.

I love this. It is an experience in itself. Had something like this in London at High Tea.

Aromatic Floral Tea
This is a simple, mild jasmine tea. Very aromatic, with a slightly bitter finish. Nothing extraordinary, but quite satisfying.

I brew this tea and drink it iced, unsweetened (normally I prefer sweet iced tea). It is wonderful and floral, yet not too flowery. Refreshing!

A ver floral aroma
I'm newer to tea drinking and I thought this would be a good tea to try out. The green tea flavor isn't quite as strong as I like it to be and I felt that the Jasmine took over. Overall a nice tea but I wouldn't mark it as a favorite of mine.

I was amazed at the delicate taste of this tea
I had no idea when I ordered tea that they would bring me this wonderful treat. I added a little honey and enjoyed every sip. It made me feel refreshed and I had to take one to go so I could find out how to order it later. What a treat:) I am anxious to try to the other brands of green tea.

If this was a perfume, I would wear it!
Someone said this of a tea in the past, and I must say the same thing with this tea. It really formed a great "aroma"-therapy moment when I drank this tea the first time last April at a Specialty Cafe in my cruise ship. Love, love, love.

Although I brewed this tea
Although I brewed this tea at a cooler temperature and for the correct length of time, I found its flavor to be astringent and lacking in the floral notes that I associate with Jasmine tea. The "grassy overtones" description is appropriate.

I had this tea at the Four Seasons Hotel in Seattle, Washington and after drinking it every morning I was there. I ordered a box set! Just amazing aroma and taste. I highly recommend this this tea.

This green tea is so aromatic and it tastes as great as it smells. If this tea’s scent was a perfume, I would wear it!

The caffeine level in a cup of tea can vary by tea type, steeping practices and even the particular tea harvest. We use the following designations as guidelines for the caffeine levels of our teas:
Robust, high caffeine teas; 50-100mg
Lower caffeine teas with shorter steeping times; 30-50mg
Tea/herbal blends with less than 30mg
Decaf tea retains a tiny amount of caffeine
Herbal teas are 100% caffeine free
These steeping guidelines produce the best results for our palates. Use them as a guideline, but you may certainly experiment and find the best results for yours.
