PLEASE BE ADVISED: All Mei Leaf Flight boxes contain very small batch and exclusive teas and are therefore very limited edition.
Dive into the nuances of Green tea! The perfect gift for yourself or a loved one, for beginners or experienced teaheads!
Tasting teas and educating your palate can be challenging because we tend to taste one tea in a session. By experiencing a flight of teas in a horizontal tasting, we can directly compare flavours and understand the nuances of different terroirs and production techniques.
This Green Tea Flight box contains three top quality teas which have been selected for comparative tastings. All of the teas come from the same province in China and demonstrates how diversity comes from small details such as cultivar, picking and processing. The box includes a card with the key differences between the teas which influence the flavour so that you can gain deeper knowledge of a particular tea type.
Once you have done a comparative tasting there will be plenty of tea remaining for individual tea sessions.
This box contains:
Pre Qing Ming harvest of one of China’s most famous teas. Lush and aromatic with satisfying vegetal notes of cut grass and asparagus with toasted hazelnuts.
Top drawer Green needle tea from Kaihua in Zhejiang. The epitome of spring with starfruit, fresh linen and green bamboo.
Traditional Buddhist tea from the temples in Zhejiang.

Every box contains a blessed string and sand from the Mandala made by the Gaden Ngari Khangsten Buddhist Monks at Mei Leaf in October 2017.
For every sale of this flight box Mei Leaf will donate £3 towards the fund for building a hostel for the Gaden Ngari Khangsten Buddhist Monks in South India. The hostel will house hundreds of poor children and orphans that have been sent to the Monastery to study Buddhism.
