Tea Genres Tasting Box  · Gift Box
- +

Understand the differences between tea genres through direct comparative tastings. This tasting selection contains three different experiences - Japan vs China Green Tea, Ball Rolled vs Strip Oolong and Raw vs Ripe PuErh. The box contains enough tea for 2 sessions of each experience.

We are so often asked about the differences between Raw and Ripe PuErh or how we would describe Chinese Green tea to someone who has only tried Japanese. These kinds of questions are best answered through direct comparative tastings.

We have created this gift box tasting selection in order to help aspiring Teaheads to TASTE the differences between some archetypal teas which represent their own particular tea genre. This is a fabulous way to level-up your palate or excite friends in the diversity of true tea. The gift box contains full brewing instructions and a guiding letter about the different brews and styles.

China Vs Japan Green

The first experience is China vs Japan Green tea. A head-to-head between our much-adored Imperial Green (Qun Ti Zhong Long Jing) and the potent vibrancy of Fukamushi Saeakari Sencha.

Ball Rolled vs Strip Oolong

The second experience pitches Ball Rolled Oolong (Alishan Cream) against Wuyi Strip Oolong (Summer Haze Oolong).

Raw Vs Ripe PuErh

The third experience compares the taste and effects of our Nuzzle Diver Raw PuErh with the brooding richness of 1996 Black Yunnan Tuo ripe tea.

Watch as I use one of these experiences to discuss brewing Oolong Tea:
