Premium first harvest tea leaves are picked and carefully crafted into our Teahouse Edition, giving it an exceptionally smooth flavor profile best appreciated when sipping as traditionally prepared tea.
We were impressed with the body and sweetness of this tea. These desirable traits come from the umami found in the young tea leaves. The tea is fixed green, rolled and dried in ovens to preserve the sweetness.
