Jade Cloud is hand-harvested in early spring when the leaves are most tender, delicate and sweet. More sweetly still, this Fair Trade green tea provides healthcare support, access to education, and other improvements to the livelihoods of over 1,200 tea farming families in the Xuan En Tea Co-op in China's mountainous Hubei province.
Tasting Notes: Tender and sweet green tea nurtured by the clouds and mist of early spring.
Ingredients: Organic and Fair Trade Certified™ green tea.
This bright, fresh green tea is grown in a pristine high-mountain climate in Hubei. Here we work with tea artisans at the Xuan En Tea Co-op to cultivate organic teas using both local and introduced tea bush cultivars of prized quality. Spring harvests are crafted by both steaming and traditional roasting into a lively, savory tea inspired by the classical Chinese green tea known as wulu, or "Jade Cloud."
