Floral and laced with delicate scents of peach and ripe fruit, Greenwood is harvested from a new plantation from Shanlinxi, Taiwan. In the last leg of winter, this fantastic tea tastes like the coming of Spring, full of touching moments of new life.
New plantation generally refers to tea trees that are 3 to 7 years old, right when the trees just mature, producing succulent leaves and consistent quality and large yields. With very light fermentation, this tea bursts of uplifting aroma, floral, fruity and incites a spring-like excitement.

We shared tea in the woods, as the winter winding down to early spring. We buried our noses to catch the rising aroma. We held up the tea to the light and marveled at the sparkling light shining through the monochromatic backdrop of bony trees. We tasted the tea like drinking from the stream. The air was still cold, but we smelled greens and the sun was warm.
