Lunch Break! - NEW!
- Ingredients: 100% Organic green tea leaves
We begin with our high mountain Chinese tea, grown on a remote island on Tian Mu Mountain in an old Buddhist Monastery garden. It sets the tone for this deeply satisfying and nourishing blend. We follow up with a good amount of organic Asanoka Sencha, deep steamed, and known for it's superb umami and depth of flavor. We then add a touch of organic Gyokuro, shade finished and provider of the long sweet finish.
