Green tea

Green tea is made with a smaller type of leaf. It was initially an Asian brew which has become a firm favorite in the West too. Preparation involves younger leaves and less oxidation than darker teas to produce a more delicate and fragrant taste. And from Matcha to Mandarin, we have a delicious range of green teas for you to choose from.

Oolong tea

Oolong tea originated in China. The leaves are semi-fermented then dried out in strong sunlight for a varying amount of time depending on the desired oxidation and strength. If it’s lightly oxidized it will taste more like a green tea. Longer oxidation means a more robust flavor. The choice is yours.

Some of the most popular oolong teas

  • Tie Guan Yin: One of the most popular teas in the Far East. It has a sweet and floral flavor.
  • Wuyi Tea: This dark tea is roasted, sometimes for 30 hours, giving it a smoky flavor.

Pu-erh tea

Another tea from the tea-loving nation of China. Originating from the Yunnan province, Pu-erh is a type of fermented tea traditionally used as a medicine in Asia. If you love a deep, rich and earthy flavor, then this is the tea for you.

Some of the most popular pu-erh teas

  • Pu-erh Green: A ‘raw’ or ‘uncooked’ tea, processed lightly before fermentation.
  • Pu-erh Black: A smoky, smooth tea.
