Product Description

Fair Trade Chinese Green Tea – Loose Leaf

Delightfully refreshing green tea with a sweet aftertaste from Xishuangbanna in South West Yunnan, China. Sourced from our friends at the IMO certified T-project.

Preparation tip

Steep one tablespoon in just off the boil water and leave in the cup. The same leaves will make a delicious cup of tea for up to 4 infusions.

The Origins of Tea

Legend has it that tea was discovered by the divine emperor Shen Nong in 2737BC and it has certainly been enjoyed as a drink in China for almost 2000 years. The oldest tea trees in the world are found in the Xishuangbanna region of Yunnan, China, where out tea is cultivated. All tea varieties are harvested from the same species of tree, known as Camellia Sinensis, but processed differently to achieve a variety of flavours. Green tea is dehydrated immediately after harvesting¬† to prevented oxidisation and is China’s most popular tea.
