A lively, delicious everyday green tea nurtured by the clouds and cool mist of early spring. Jade Cloud is a lively green tea that we created over a decade ago in collaboration with artisans at the Xuan En Organic Yisheng Tea Cooperative in the remote mountains of Hubei province. Three different styles of green tea (steamed, oven-baked and roasted) are combined to make a deliciously smooth everyday green tea inspired by the classic Chinese green tea known as Wulu. Jade Cloud is grown from hardy tea cultivars like Long Jing #43 and Hubei E-Cha #10, and is harvested entirely by hand from the middle to the end of April according to "two leaves and a bud" plucking standard. Savory notes from steamed tea leaves are expertly balanced with the toasted chestnut flavor and flowery aromas of baked and roasted lots.
