Chinese Whole Leaf Green Tea

I just had a 3g sample of this tea, but it was delicious. Smooth and fragrant; a great go-to green tea. I'll certainly consider ordering more.

A green tea revelation

I’ve been enjoying the Chinese green tea for several months, I was looking for a green tea that is light and not bitter and this is it. It’s my morning habit now.

Delicious tea!

This tea is extremely smooth, subtle and pleasant to drink. It has a lovely, fresh aroma and silky mouthfeel - one of the best green teas I've ever had. I would definitely recommend this tea!!

My Go-to Green Tea

I really enjoy this tea. It's fresh and earthy at the same time, and does two rounds of infusion. Have bought a few times!

Excellent staple green tea

This, along with the RTC long jing, is my staple daily tea and has been for many years now. It's fairly strong for a green tea, with a rounded, grassy, fresh flavour. There's none of the astringency associated with a lot of lower quality green tea, and you can get 2 good brews from the same leaves.

Tasting Notes

The flavours are clean and bright with notes of fresh spinach and pea pods, complemented by a smooth, silky mouth feel.


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


For the optimum infusion use 158°F (70°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

30¢ per cup based on 0.07oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water and 2 infusions.


Anshun, Guizou

Our phenomenal Green Whole Leaf comes from the Anshun area of Guizou in the South West of China. The area is remote and largely unspoilt with abundant forests and cloud cover draping the mountains - making it the ideal terroir for tea.
