Pine Needles Green is named for its unique appearance, no conifers to be found here! Tea growers select just the tender bud and two top leaves of the tea plant and expertly shape this pluck into the delightful, fine needles we have here. A pre-Qing Ming tea, Pine Needles Green is made up of the first tea harvest of the year, yielding the most potent flavor and nutrient content available. The brew is soft and warm, with a more prominent vegetal taste than most Chinese green teas. This type of chlorophyll-rich flavor is reminiscent of Japanese green tea and is sure to please fans of both styles.
