This tea sets the standard for what a white tea could and should be.(harvested April 2016 - $6.50 / 25g).
(2) BaiHao YinZhen (white tea) - An authentic Fuding Silver Needle White tea, this extremely high-grade tea is a game changer.

A true work of art from one of the most famous tea gardens in the birthplace of white tea (harvested April 2016 - $10.00 / 25g)
(3) HuangShan MaoFeng (green tea) - A classic Chinese green tea, this superior grade HuangShan MaoFeng is grown in China's Anhui Province and consists of only the bud and two leaves. It was meticulously crafted in the traditional HuangShan style with repeated stages of baking and cooling in a manual wood-fired oven. By repeatedly baking and cooling these very delicate leaves, the tea masters have produced a remarkably sweet honey-like taste and aroma with no hint of bitterness or astringency. This beautiful work of art sets the standard for how a green tea should taste. (harvested April 2016 - $12.00 / 25g).
(4) AliShan (oolong tea) - Smell and taste this tea and any writing about it will become irrelevant and superflous. Its quality of construction and its remarkable floral taste and aroma demonstrate that this oolong is of the highest quality. Hand harvested at 2100 meters on the famous Ali Mountain of southern Taiwan, this tea's full and large leaves produce a crystalline yellow liquor and an aroma reminiscent of a field of wildflowers on a cool spring morning. This tea elevates our expectations for how a tea can make you feel. (harvested April 2016 - $10.00 / 25g).
