Full and Creamy

I've had loose Emerald Green Teas before, but RareTeaCo's Chinese Emerald Green unsurprisingly took me to a whole new and improved level of experience... This tea's liquor is lush and full and velvety. A must try!

Better than green teas 2x the price

Mango aroma with a mellow and long-lasting buttery sweet flavour.

A diamond of an emerald

Pure joy in a cup. Fesh and fragrant. Hard to think that green tea can get any better

Excellent, high quality tea

I didn't think I liked green tea. But this is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Smooth, earthy, and a fantastic choice for any fans (or those just experimenting!) with green tea.

Very mellow, fruity and earthy with mango aroma and srong earthy notes of beetroot and chesnut

I am relatively new to green tea but l think this is one of the blackest green tea you can get making it is less astringent and grassy hence easier to drink with low sugar or unsweetened. But what makes this tea special is unmistakable and stronger fruity aroma of mango compared to others and strong notes of earthy and soily flavour you can find in some root vegetable nuts like beetroot and roast chestnut. First infusion taste clean and mellow too with more mango aroma, further infusion reveals more earthy flavour than fruity. About the appearance, very young thin leaves on stalk were beautifully curled unfurling to mostly intact bunches of whole leaves on stalk. About packaging, it looked fully airtight thick aluminium coated pouches, thing, wide and long labelled with name of tea, company and best-before date. So it could easily be fit in a small letterbox size box. The only problem was it doesn't fit in their caddies used by the company so you will need to find an airtight container to fit that. I had some difficulty stick it in a slightly under half a litter plastic container without crushing leaves as it was too wide.

Tasting Notes

Soft hay with notes of apricots and an elegant and lingering buttery finish.


Use 0.07oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water (2g per 150ml).


For the optimum infusion use 158Ā°F (70Ā°C) water.


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

26Ā¢ per cup based on 0.07oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water and 2 infusions.


Green Tea

Origin & Craft

Emerald Green has been famous since the Guangxu Emperor's reign during the Qing Dynasty. The best are picked in the early Spring before China's Qingming Festival. This is a time when Chinese families honour and celebrate their ancestors.

It is said in local legend that the area where it grows produces such wonderful tea because of thwarted love. A young woman, finding her lover killed by a jealous rival, cried so much she turned to rain and her lover to a tea bush. The clouds now softly cling to the mountains keeping them forever united.
