Named for the resemblance of the dried leaves to young bamboo shoots, Purple Bamboo is an ancient green tea style, with roots dating back as far as the Tang Dynasty (618-907 CE). Harvested early in spring from the young leaf buds, Purple Bamboo was originally crafted as a tribute tea for the imperial court. One taste and it's easy to see why this style was favored by China's royalty; Purple Bamboo offers a wonderfully crisp and uplifting flavor profile, with a freshness that reminds us of cucumbers and sugarcane, a prime example of what we look for in premium green tea.

Alishan, Spring

Regarded as Taiwan's most famous tea variety, Alishan Spring is an archetypal example of Formosa oolong, distilling everything we love about this popular category. Named for the mountain range in south-central Taiwan where it grows, this tea benefits from its high altitude growing environment, which provides lower temperatures, thick fog, and well-draining soils. These factors result in slower plant growth, allowing the tea leaves to produce a more concentrated flavor. As a result, Alishan Spring offers a rich vegetal body, creamy texture, and sweet finish not found in lower elevation crops.

Wuyi oolong is China's oldest oolong variety, cultivated in the craggy ravines of Fujian's Wuyi Mountains. Unlike other oolongs, the Wuyi style is crafted with longer oxidation and a much heavier roast.

Our Amber Wuyi is a wonderful introduction to this category, produced from the classic Shui Xian cultivar and roasted in the traditional method over longan fruitwood charcoal. This heritage cultivar and premium craftsmanship produce a mineral-rich flavor, with notes of burnt caramel and whiskey casks.

Golden Monkey, First Pick is one of our most popular black teas, harvested on Jiulong Hill, in the eastern part of the Wuyi Mountains. This premium black tea is produced in mid-March from the first new tea leaves of the year. Only the top leaf buds with one or two leaves are selected, resulting in the sweetest and smoothest taste. When brewed, Golden Monkey, First Pick offers a sensuously smooth flavor, with notes of caramel, cocoa nibs, and molasses.
