~Top Shelf Teas~
Light color, sweet flavor, and a buttery profile with notes of pineapple. Not a black tea, not so much a green, Oolongs retain a fresh and totally distinct palate. Watch the tight clusters expand into whole leaves as it steeps.
Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls
China/Scented Green Tea
The top two leaves and bud of this tea undergo the Yin Hao process of jasmine scenting, involving the addition and removal of jasmine petals from the tea 13 separate times. Individual leaves are hand-rolled into small pearls. Watch the pearls slowly unfurl, releasing a complex and supremely aromatic tea.
This rare tea is picked on only two days of the year. It is light in color, sweet, and lightly fragranced with very subtle nuances.
Mango/Black Tea/Sri Lanka
Named after the last queen of Hawaii, combines lush tropical flavors of peach, mango, apple, orange and guava.
City Harvest Black
Orchid scenting and vanilla flavor, enhance Chinese and Vietnamese black teas. 20% of the proceeds from the sales of both City Harvest teas go to the hunger relief agency based in New York City (www.cityharvest.org).
City Harvest Green
Apple and jasmine scenting bring a sweet floral bouquet to the grassy freshness of this Chinese and Indian green tea blend.
Sri Lanka/Black Tea
This flavorful and mildly astringent Vithanakande Ceylon is grown by small land holders in the Ratnapura district on the border of the Sinharaja forest.
Grown high in the foothills of the Himalayas on the amazing Maikabarai estate whose "bio-diverse" conditions are integrated into a 6-tiered sub-tropical rainforest (see http://www.makaibari.com/). This autumnal harvest has a nutty note and pronounced greenness.
Sri Lanka/ Scented Black Tea/Organic
Consistently our best selling tea, our Earl Grey is all organic, even the bergamot oil. This is a redolent classic.
Fresh, sweet, and cooling, with grassy vegetable notes.
Gen Mai Cha
Originated during WWII when tea was scarce, roasted corn and popcorn was mixed into the tea. Japanese Bancha green tea is the base of this distinct tea with a rich and delicious grain-like character.
