Genmaicha is a flavorful Japanese classic which includes a stunning combination of whole, fresh Green Sencha leaves combined with roasted organic brown rice. The almost sweet, toasted flavor of the rice adds a lovely contribution to the whole bodied green tea leaves. A great tea for early dining, and well suited for afternoon dishes.
Green Sencha Leaf Tea
This organic green sencha leaf tea from Japan is a delicate, stimulating beverage made from the season's fresh harvest of the first young leaves. The handpicked tealeaves from the high mountaintops of Japan are immediately steamed to retain their peak flavor and vibrant, brilliant, green color. Extensive research confirms the high anti-oxidant and poly phenol activity found in green tea, and it comes highly recommended as a general cleansing beverage. Because of the caffeine content, green tea should be prepared using small amounts of herb and steeped no longer than 1-2 minutes. Contains caffeine.
Gunpowder Green Tea
(Certified Organic & Fair Trade Certified)
A hearty, strong, green tea that is rolled in small pellets and was aptly awarded its title, because of its resemblance to the pellets used for gunpowder ammunitions during the 17th century. Originally rolled tightly to preserve freshness and maintain moisture during long voyages overseas, it still holds true as an unsurpassable fresh tea that is full of dark bold color and a striking taste that is unforgettable. Gunpowder tea is astringent and mildly bitter and you can add a very small pinch of Stevia or Spearmint to soften the taste. Contains caffeine.
(Certified Organic & Fair Trade Certified)
A fabulous "all purpose" tea made from freshly picked green tea leaves and Jasmine flowers. A fragrant tea that can be enjoyed any time of the day, however many of us at Mountain Rose Herbs are partial to afternoon sipping of this blend. Fresh, floral and a full of flavor! Contains caffeine.
Kukicha Twig Tea
This is probably one of the most opulent blends from the green tea family. It has a unique brand of full body sweetness that is more often agreeable with seniors and children. Kukicha is harvested from the carefully-aged twigs and stems of the tea plant. After the correct aging, the twigs are toasted, providing a lightly flavored tea with a taste reminiscent of nectar sweetness. Mild, and soothing, Kukicha twig tea is quite low in caffeine and can be enjoyed at any hour. Contains caffeine.
White Peony Tea
White tea is picked early in the season when the buds are still fresh, young and tender. Because of this early picking, the taste white tea produces is very mild, and sweet without the sometimes astringent qualities of regular green teas.
White tea consists of beautiful, full length leaves, having a shape that resembles blossom petals. While the name of this tea can be a misnomer, it should be understood that it is embodied with hues of green, and fermented brown, with delicate white "needles" to lay the final touches.
White Silver Needle
(Cultivated Without Chemicals)
Fair trade Certified- No
This exceptional tea is one of the rarest and finest teas available in the world. It is only harvested for 2-3 days each spring in China's Fujian province, and consequently only a very limited supply is available. Silver Needle tea is handpicked from the first unopened flower buds, and are immediately dried, allowing for a minimal amount of processing. Stunning to look at, the tea needles are frosted with graceful white hairs, and smooth texture. Silver Needles Tea brews to a light golden color, and has a soft fragrant aroma. The taste is truly unique, and is mildly sweet, refreshing and delicate, yet with a pronounced and lingering flavor.
