A mellow, high-quality loose leaf green tea with a floral aroma. This tea has subtle fruity flavors, with grassy and nutty notes shining throughout.
The production process for this tea resembles the process of a classic green tea in the Darjeeling Hills. The carefully hand-plucked tea leaves are brought in the factory and allowed to sit for a very brief time before directly heated through the dryer. This is a crucial step to halt any oxidation process that might occur. The half dried teas are then transferred to a rolling machine that initially breaks the cell walls of the leaves allowing them to release essential oils. Unlike other green teas, the rolled teas are allowed to rest for a while before re-drying when the tea is at the peak of its aroma. The teas are then broken down through a crushing process and sorted through three different machines. This helps in only gathering the finer parts of the tea leaves and sorts out the stems, flakey leafs, and also grades them according to sizes. Finally, it is hand-sorted and multiple grades of the same teas are created.
