Our collection of global tea represents all the traditional tea producing nations with their signature varieties. Over the past 4000 years, the tea plant spread to each of these nations, where it took on a unique form and flavor due to the regional terroir, namely the local soil quality, humidity, altitude, and temperature. Each region also developed specialized methods of processing the tea leaf to obtain a particular taste and form. Shaped by the traditions of their culture, local tea masters are still developing and perfecting regional tea around the world. Explore our collection!
Caffeine naturally occurs in the tea plant, causing all traditional teas to have a naturally occurring amount level of caffeine. Chemical processes can be used to extract most of the caffeine from tea leaves, however we do not carry these processed decaf teas. We do, however, have a variety of herbal teas that are naturally 100% caffeine free. On the other hand, other traditional teas are naturally highly caffeinated. These create a sustained buzz that won't result in the familiar unwanted "crash" that often follows coffee.
The leaves of this green tea are rolled into the shape of little pinhead pellets resembling gunpowder, hence its name. Gunpowder green tea tastes bold & lightly smoky, also lending to it's name. Gunpowder tea leaves stay fresh longer than any other green tea leaves due to its compressed form. Gunpowder green is higher in caffeine than most other green teas (35-40 mg/8 oz serving) and is commonly used by athletes to improve endurance over periods of 3-6 hours.

Green tea aids in weight loss, reduces "bad" cholesterol, boosts the immune system, and is also associated with the prevention of cancer. Green tea is widely used as a natural preservative in food and cosmetics. It even looks fresh and healthy! Green helps overweight people shed excess fat without side effects. It may help modulate calorie and fat burning through the sympathetic nervous system, the adrenal glands and specific nerve chemicals. Green tea shows fat-burning properties beyond those explained by its caffeine content.

Author: Leslie H. An earthy and bold flavor with a surprisingly subtle sweet aftertaste...Although the first steeping was a little too strong, the second and third steeping were perfectly balanced yet complex...Making this tea iced and keeping it in my water bottle on long hikes keeps me going...
Author: Laura We tried this loose tea in the Keurig filter cup and it works pretty well. I would imagine it is not quite as potent as steeped tea, but this machine is quick and wonderful! We loaded the filter and used it for three large mugs of tea, and it was good. I would say you can recommend your teas for this machine - as I said, probably not quite as strong, but definitely tasty. The great thing about the Keurig is the water heats in a flash, and the beverage (you can make tea, coffee, and hot chocolate) stays hot.
Author: Preston This tea is amazing. I have at least a glass a day and the taste is wonderful. Top notch for sure. Each steep and sip are as amazing as the first. although I must say it tasted the best when I had it with water from my cabin, because it is untainted pure mountain river water. The flavor was stronger and more crisp. Either way it is amazing.
Author: Umbreona This is a truly unique Green Tea experience. It tastes like a rather Bold Green tea in its body and packs a nice punch compared to other teas. It almost has a slight Jade Oolong flavor to its main body. Its aftertaste is quite a surprise. It is not as sweet as some other Green Teas and honestly does have a smokey character to it. It would go great with smoke cheeses or meats. It is just strong enough that it can satisfy a coffee drinker's tough pallet but just light enough not to scare away a Green Tea drinker. It is definitely is worth a sampling if it is peaking your interest and it makes a great day starter.
