This rare tea comes from Mt. Phoenix, a little-known garden in Pu’er. This tea is only produced during the early spring. It offers a light, pleasant tasting experience with soft floral tones akin to rose at the start. Towards the middle, stone-fruity attributes like pear add a sublime texture to the liquor. The aftertaste is of sweet grapes generating a splendid experience of a Yunnan spring harvest. Country of Origin: China
Kathmandu Green is a premium green tea that undergoes minimal oxidation in processing. This helps in retaining the plant’s natural appearance and color. It also preserves the healthy properties of the plant. Its complex flavor is due to the processing technique. Kathmandu Green is roasted which preserves its mellow favors and subtle taste. It has floral aromas and grassy taste notes. The infused leaves give a marine scent, which is how the quality of green teas are technically determined. The more marine scent, the better the quality. Country of Origin: Nepal
TI KUAN YIN (Also known as Goddess of Mercy)

Legend tells of a poor farmer who took care of a shrine of Guan Yin, who rewarded his efforts with a gift of a special tea bush which ultimately made him and his neighbors very wealthy.
