In making this tea, the tea plants are covered with bamboo mats in the last few weeks of their growing season to promote full flavor.
After the leaves are plucked, they are immediately steamed, rapidly cooled and then ground by stone mills into a powder. A single mill can only process 40 grams of leaves per hour.
The Tao of Tea
Like the Tao, the art of tea is universal. We began our work with tea in 1997 to be a connecting thread for tea culture. Practicing the art on a daily basis in our teahouses in Portland, Oregon, we are a group of tea enthusiasts from different backgrounds and cultures. We travel, learn, take delight and seek to offer pure leaf teas with great flavor, artistry and soul. Our reward comes through actions that help people's lives, sustain the art of tea and promise a healthy environment.
