Delicate green tea with a vegetal sweet finish.

Origin: Fujian, China

Variety: Camellia sinensis sinensis

50g pack – 17p per cup (based on 2 infusions at 3g per cup)

Also known as 'hairy tips' after the abundance of downy buds used to make this tea style, our Jade Tips is a lovely light tea with no harshness on the palate. 

The dry leaves are long, neat and forest green. The infusion is a pale, limey colour, with a sappy, grassy freshness, and sweeter floral notes. 

If you don't have a temperature-controlled kettle, make sure you cool your teapot down first with cold water, as boiling water will kill these delicate leaves.
