Jade Dew

Add to my notebook

Three weeks before hand harvesting, shade structures which filter out up to 90% of sunlight are placed over the tea to develop what is commonly called in Japan "the taste of the shadows. The result is a tea weak in tannins, highly complex and aromatic.

Extra smooth by virtue of its velvety texture and delicate fragrances of snow peas, water chestnuts and corn salad, this tea, with leaves of intense emerald green, will delight you with its finesse and depth.

The quintessence of Japanese teas.
