One of the "Ten Great Chinese Teas", Xin Yang Mao Jian is a green tea with a fresh, elegant flavour. The tea is grown throughout the countryside around the city of Xin Yang in Henan Province, which gives the tea part of its name. The rest, Mao Jian, means literally 'Hair Point' in reference to the long, fine shape of the leaves. Our Xin Yang Mao Jian is a high quality example of this outstanding tea.
Genmaicha is a Japanese green tea, sencha, mixed with toasted brown rice. The rice gives the tea a unique, mellow, nutty flavour. The sencha in this tea is of much higher grade than in standard Genmaicha. The producer has won the prize for the best sencha in Japan several times in their history.
Japanese Matcha is tea leaves that have been ground to a fine powder. This ceremonial grade of Matcha is from Uji, one of the oldest tea cultivating areas of Japan. This Matcha is made using only the finest tea leaves and buds which have been shade-grown to produce an intense and sweet flavour and turn the Matcha a vibrant green colour. This Matcha has been produced without the use of artificial fertilisers or pesticides.
