Loose Green Tea

Loose Green Tea: distinctive and healthy teas from China, Japan & Darjeeling.

Loose green tea, unlike black tea, is not oxidised in the air. These teas are also misleadingly known as unfermented teas, meaning they are not oxidised. They have very little tannin and are low in caffeine – they have about one third of the caffeine found in black teas. Green tea is especially popular in China and Japan. We offer a wide variety of the best green teas from Darjeeling to China and Japan and beyond. All ours are larger loose leaf grades so that they can be tasted at their best. The best green tea is often rolled by hand, a skill taken to a high art form in China and Japan where a special green tea, Matcha, forms the basis of the Japanese Tea Ceremony. China’s Gunpowder is a distinctive looking and famous green tea rolled into characteristic grey balls. It has a delicate, refined flavour. Green teas are healthy for they are high in antioxidants, beneficial to the cardio-vascular system and as anti-carcinogens. All green teas should be made with water which has come off the boil and allowed to cool slightly so as to avoid becoming bitter. Green teas should never be drunk with milk. One teaspoon or two to three grams of tea should be used per cup and infuse for two to three minutes. Green teas can be brewed more than once.
GREEN TEA INSIGHT: Definition: unoxidised tea. Character: from herbaceous to floral, grassy, vegetal and nutty. High in: polyphenols. These antioxidants include EGCG. From: China, Japan, Darjeeling and elsewhere. Examples from China: Gunpowder, Pi Luo Chun and Chun Mee. Examples from Japan: Sencha, Bancha and Matcha. Making: allow freshly boiled water to cool for a couple of minutes before making green tea.

Quick delivery and strong packaging to protect tea. Great selection with good photos of tea and description. I find I need a notepad and pencil as the subdivided sections make it a little time consuming to compare prices and tasting notes. Best tea supplier I've used so far.

Service rating : Apart from a little spillage from the filled tin which needed to be wiped away on unwrapping, I have no complaints. Tea really good, possibly a little 'dusty'.
Product : Covered in comments above.


On 09-Jan-2017 the supplier responded:
I am concerned to hear your reservations about the teas received. Tins are prone to leakage so the lids are taped. There should be no reason for the tea being 'dusty'. I suggest that you return the tea at our cost so we can examine this and send new lots.

I love the tea. The package is also very nice.The only thing is that I ordered 3 x green earl grey tea and one green tea with rose and I got 3 x green tea with rose and one green earl grey tea. Green tea with rose has beautiful and so intense aroma. I love it. And earl grey is just classic, perfect I guess green tea with rose will be my favourite now as I have chance to enjoy it more.


On 15-Nov-2016 the supplier responded:
I am delighted that you are pleased with your teas. I am sorry for the packing error. Should you wish we would be happy to change these for the combination you ordered.


On 15-Nov-2016 the customer added:
Hello Richard,

Thank you but it's not necessary to change the order. Actually I'm very pleased with the tea and the quality is also very good. I'm a huge fun of green tea so definitely I will choose it next time too.

The four 100g bags arrived an a neat pizza-style box, just one day after ordering. Grey's tea packaging is excellent: inner paper sacks, then aluminium foil, then mylar film on the outside. No messing! They got the tea to me just as fast as possible, as well-presented as possible.
