A 2017 Garden Direct Series exclusive! This impressive collection features seasonal micro-lots of single-origin teas we source and import directly from artisan tea farmers. Available for a limited time, these handcrafted teas were selected through real time micro-lot tea cuppings during our 2017 origin travels.

In the 2017 Mingqian season, we chose to produce Green Needles from the Long Jing #43 cultivar for the perfect balance of tender dewy sweetness, pleasantly herbaceous and pine-like aroma, and undertones of savory umami.

Tasting Notes: This extraordinarily rare green tea tastes like spring in its purest form: tender, fresh dewy grass with a delicious green sweetness.
