Notes of juniper berries, pineapples and pine
Green�Tea from Assam, India / Harvested in�July 2019�/ Organic
Green Pearl�is made from the large Assamese leaf variety indigenous to�the region. The unique cultivar, terroir, and craftsmanship of this tea produces a�clean, light-tasting brew with pronounced fruit and earthy notes with a touch of astringency.�The subtlety�of this tea�expresses itself over the course of many infusions ranging from bright and invigorating to mellow and soft.
Our teamaker�hand-picked from select tea bushes with high chlorophyll content and valuable antioxidants. Processing involves cool withering indoors for approximately 15 hours under constant airflow.�This ensures even oxidation without significant discoloration or leaf damage. By hand, the leaves are pan-roasted�to intensify the cultivar’s unique fruit and�earthy�notes and gently rolled into tight pearls. During steeping, they beautifully unfurl to their full leaves releasing complex tastes with a green, mild infusion.
The higher elevation of this garden means the harvest is later to sprout, and sprouts more sporadically than lower elevation gardens.�Because of this, our method for selecting this tea is typically made before the onset of the�monsoon season. This ensures that we select the ones that best combines the aromatic and taste properties that we look for in our teas.
