Green tea

Description

Ancient green tea isn’t your ordinary green tea. This tea comes from an ancient tea tree grove in Yunnan, China, specifically in the Jingmai mountains.  Within this tea grove, the tea coexists in nature, giving you a nutrient-dense tea with great complexity. While this area may be hard to reach since it’s a small village that’s isolated, these ancient tea trees are well-kept. The Dai people handpick each leaf. While these tea trees range from 700- 1000 years old, each cup you sip continues the history. Enjoy slowly.
