Additional Information

  • Description
    This truly extraordinary Japanese tea generates a bright green, almost luminescent infusion with a wonderfully smooth, sweet and creamy taste – we'd compare it to freshly shelled peas, lightly steamed and coated with melted butter. Sound a bit far-fetched? Just wait till you've tried it.
  • Ingredients

    Green Tea

    Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

    Gluten free.

    Before you even drink it the large, dark green leaves shout quality from the pouch. Once tried you get an incredibly full, "green" flavour, almost reminiscent of seaweed... Sounds odd but it is amazing. First had it in the Covent Garden Tea Bar and it tastes even better out of bone China.

Origin: China

The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.

Green Tea

Green tea's fresh, verdant taste is down to its processing: the leaves are heated shortly after picking, stopping the oxidation process that would eventually turn them into black tea. Some of the best green teas are found in Japan and China, where the techniques of firing or steaming the leaves have been perfected over many centuries.
