Green tea is the oldest of all tea types and China has been producing Greens long before any other country. This history means that Green tea varies much more widely in China.

In this flight box we present three China Greens to taste side-by-side. By experiencing a flight of teas in a horizontal tasting we can directly compare the teas and learn more about them in the process.

This China Green Tea Flight box contains three top quality teas which have been selected for comparative tastings. The box contains a letter written by myself to explain the key differences between the teas and how these affect the sensory experience.

The box contains tasting cards to fill out for your reference. Once you have completed a comparative tasting there will be plenty of tea remaining for individual tea sessions.

This box contains:

Melon Seed Green

Unique Anhui province Green tea using a bigger leaf picking combined with flash roasting to bring out warmth and sweetness. Dark baked potato skin and watercress moving to strawberry cheesecake.
