IMAGE 1- JASMINE PHOENIX PEARLS Jasmine Phoenix Pearls are perfumy, hand-rolled jewels of tea from Fuding, in Fujian province, China. Any fan of jasmine tea should try this specially crafted wonder. When added to hot water, Jasmine Phoenix Pearls majestically unfurl, releasing their delicate scent and flavour. Also known as 'Jasmine Dragon Pearls', their liquor is sweet and almost sugary. Very soft, airy mouthfeel. The delicate quality of the flavour is due in part to the leaves used to produce this tea: two tender, tiny new leaves and one plump unopened leaf bud. Younger leaves will yield softer flavour. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 90°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 2- EARL GREY GREEN Earl Grey Green tea represents a different take on a classic combination: Indian black tea with tangy bergamot flavour. It features a fresh green tea with a delicious crisp texture that pairs perfectly with the orange rind zestiness of the bergamot. Earl Grey Green has a pleasantly dry finish with lingering citrus sweetness. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 3- GENMAI CHA Genmai Cha is a classic Japanese green tea, blended with toasted, popped rice. Originally created to stretch short supplies of tea, now enjoyed by tea lovers here and abroad. Warm and nutty taste, with a lovely savoury quality. A hearty cup of tea that is easy to combine with food. Genmai Cha is a great solution for those seeking a substantial, but less astringent, flavour from their cup. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2 minutes. / IMAGE 4- GUNPOWDER Gunpowder is a classic green tea from Zhejiang province, China. As the name implies, Gunpowder tea is made up of leaves hand-rolled into tiny pellets. These resemble gunpowder, and give this tea its distinct name. Full-bodied cup with a hint of smokiness and smooth mouthfeel. Blend Gunpowder tea with spearmint to create the famous 'Moroccan Mint' tea. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2 minutes. / IMAGE 5- GYOKURO Gyokuro, a shade grown steamed green tea, is among the finest of Japanese teas. While the young leaves of the spring season develop, the Gyokuro plants are shaded from sun for several weeks. This slows the growth allowing tea leaves more time to develop depth and flavour. The sun-deprived leaves are higher in chlorophyll, which explains their vivid green colour. They're also higher in amino acids, most notably L-theanine, which accounts for the perfectly smooth, rich and soft flavour. Our fine Gyokuro green tea produces a deeply sweet aroma of freshly buttered greens and seaweed, with no grassiness or harshness. Think of tender new grass just sprouting in the spring. Soft on the palate with a balanced, delicate finish. Energising and soothing cup of tea. Use lower water temperature and enjoy multiple infusions to get the most from this tea. This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 70°C for 2 minutes. / IMAGE 6- DRAGONWELL Dragonwell (Lung Ching or Longjing in local parlance) is one of China's most famous green teas, originating from Hangzhou in Zhejiang province. This tea has a very distinctive shape: smooth and perfectly flattened along the inside vein of the leaf, the result of highly skilled shaping in a hot wok. This process, known as pan-firing or pan-frying, was perfected in China by tea masters over many centuries. It gives the tea an inviting, toasty aroma. Our fine Dragonwell green tea also has a sweet, rounded flavour, perhaps reminiscent of freshly roasted white corn. Full, nutty and buttery texture, and pleasantly dry finish. A truly satisfying cup of tea. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2 minutes. / IMAGE 7- JASMINE YIN HAO Jasmine Yin Hao (meaning ‘Silver Tip’) is a deeply perfumy green tea from the Fujian province of China. Very layered and lingering floral aroma. Soft, full-bodied and sweet flavour with a slight dryness in the finish. Our Jasmine Yin Hao grade is among the highest for green jasmine teas. This jasmine green tea has been infused with jasmine many times over to create a truly unforgettable experience. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 8- SENCHA OVERTURE Sencha is a steamed green tea from the Shizuoka prefecture of Japan, harvested in the early summer (the second flush). It produces a rich, brothy texture, with a clean, very refreshing green aroma. The cup develops a sweet flavour reminiscent of tender steamed veggies and fresh seaweed, with a rounded finish that coats the palate at the end. Our Sencha Overture has a classic sencha flavour, perfect for fans of all things 'green.' This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 70°C for 2 minutes. / IMAGE 9- JADE SNAIL Jade Snail is a Chinese green tea made up of tightly rolled fuzzy buds that resemble spiral shells or the scroll of a violin. While steeping, they unfurl to deliver intricate notes of roasted nuts, soft smokiness and a hop-like crispness. As it fades, a dry white grape character lingers. Our Jade Snail green tea is intriguingly delicate and bold. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 10- VANILLA GREEN Vanilla Green combines the rich, warm dark sugar aroma of vanilla with delicate Chinese green tea. According to the International Ice Cream Association, Vanilla is by far the most popular flavour, getting a full 23% of all ice cream consumption. Our Vanilla green tea has a soothing, sweet and very 'beany' vanilla fragrance (like warm sugar cookies made with fresh vanilla beans). This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 11- KUKICHA Japanese Kukicha is a blend of tea leaves and tea leaf stems. The lightness of the stems translates into sweet notes of white sesame seed or chestnut in the cup. Stems also make this tea a lower caffeine alternative compared to most green teas. Tender quality to the texture, like soft white rice, smooth and silky. Kukicha is well balanced and very low in astringency. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2 minutes. / IMAGE 12- PI LO CHUN Green tea from the Jiangsu province of China. Pi Lo Chun (sometimes written biluochun) is made from the finest tender buds, gathered and processed exclusively by hand. Perfumy and sweet floral, with a full body and slight earthiness. Lingering, aromatic finish and interestingly floral-smoky. Pi Lo Chun is known for having a very distinct character; you'll find ours to be quite friendly to the palate and savoury. Enjoy! This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2 minutes. / IMAGE 13- LEMON MERINGUE GREEN A vanilla citrus twist to a classic green tea, this refreshing blend is the perfect slice of spring. Indulge in the creamy scent and flavour of perfect meringue upon a bitter-sweet lemon pie. This is a limited edition spring blend only available until the end of the season, so don't miss out! This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 14- CITRON GREEN Citron Green tea combines green tea from China with delicate flavours of lemon and lime. The clean vegetal notes of the green tea blend seamlessly with the citrus crispness. Delightfully sweet, lifted by the freshness of the lemon-lime. Not too dry or too citrusy. Citrus Green is an Adagio customer favourite, perfect hot or iced. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 15- CASABLANCA TWIST Casablanca Twist is an interesting twist on classic Moroccan Mint tea, which traditionally combines Gunpowder green tea from China with fresh mint. We kept the latter, and replaced the smoky notes of Gunpowder with the muscatel highlights of a second flush Darjeeling from India. The result is very a refreshing cup, with bold, cool minty notes, smooth and relaxing texture and flavour. Very intriguing cup. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2 minutes. / IMAGE 16- MANGO GREEN The origins of our Mango Green tea reside in a Hindu legend, where a mango tree grew from the ashes of the sun princess, who had been incinerated by an evil sorceress. When the ripened mango fell to the ground, the beautiful princess emerged again. Our bestselling Mango Green combines the vegetal goodness of green tea with the flavour of perfectly ripened mangoes. Juicy texture, creamy-dry finish with great floral aromatics and candy sweetness. Sun princess sold separately. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 17- HOJICHA Hojicha is a roasted green tea from Japan made from Bancha leaves - the summer crop of Sencha consisting of coarser leaves and stems. The high heat treatment diminishes tannins and caffeine in the leaves, making Hojicha an excellent tea for evenings and those sensitive to caffeine. Toasty nutty flavour is easy to pair with food (you will often find Hojicha on Japanese restaurant menus). This tea is warming and soothing, a real comfort drink for any time of the day. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2 minutes. / IMAGE 18- COCOMINT GREEN Like wine and cheese, burgers and fries, chocolate and mint is a famous partnership in the world of food. We bring that popular flavour combination here, blended with green tea leaves to create a delicious, lip-smacking treat. Fresh and cool, with a smooth, sweet minty flavour and whisps of chocolate. Just like a stick of zesty peppermint bark chocolate. Bon appetit! This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 19- RASPBERRY GREEN Raspberry Green is a blend of fresh, crisp green tea from China with sweetly tart red raspberry flavour. Very candy-like aroma, delicately tangy and jammy raspberry taste. Clean finish and rounded texture. This fun, juicy Raspberry Green tea is tangy in the cup, without getting too 'cheeky'. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 20- JASMINE CHUN HAO Jasmine Chun Hao is a perfumy green tea from the Fujian province of China, infused with the delicate scent of jasmine flowers. Sweet cup, notes of warmed sugar and jasmine in bloom on a summer evening. Slightly toasty like a fresh biscuit. Light, refreshing cup and not overwhelmingly floral. A perfect introduction to our selection of excellent jasmine teas. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 90°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 21- CITRUS MINT GREEN Liven up your day with our bright, cheerful and refreshing Citrus Mint Green tea. This effervescent blend combines the sweet, smooth, well-rounded feel of green tea with the fresh zest of lemon and orange, finished off with the cool gentleness of spearmint. It may very well be the perfect blend to invigorate your afternoon without over-caffeinating. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 22- GREEN ASSAM A rare green tea from Assam, India. Its deep green leaves are replete with fragrance of flowers and hits of smoke. The infusion is light, floral and a bit smoky. As it cools, fruity notes of plum and apricot come to the fore, along with a hint of grassiness. Overall, a complex and very enjoyable cup. A worthy addition to the green tea pantheon. Please give it a try. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 3 minutes. / IMAGE 23- CALYPSO GREEN Calypso Green is a fun and festive blend of luscious fruits and coconut with green tea leaves from China. Juicy, sweet and punch-like with Caribbean flair, one sip and you can almost hear the steel drum band. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 24- SLEEPING DRAGON Sleeping Dragon green tea is grown at about 1,000 meters in the mountainous Fujian province. The tightly rolled leaves and silvery fuzzy buds give this tea its signature shape and name. In the cup, it delivers a soft, fruity sweetness enfolded by a rich smokey note similar to a gunpowder, but more complex and crisp in the finish. Sleeping Dragon remains a great cup for a green tea novice or those who oppose the grassy character of some varieties. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 25- APRICOT GREEN Apricot Green tea combines green tea leaves from China with the delicate flavour of apricots. Warm, dense fruit-floral aroma, succulent texture. Our naturally flavoured Apricot Green tea makes a light and refreshing drink that's popular both hot and iced. An Adagio customer favourite. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 26- GINSENG GREEN Fresh and crisp green tea from China with the energising flavour of ginseng, accented with dried ginger. Sweet, earthy green aroma, notes of fresh hay and delicately spicy herbs. Pleasantly bittersweet without being medicinal. Soothing, soft finish. A very grounding cup of tea. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes. / IMAGE 27- WHITE MONKEY White Monkey or Bai Mao Hou is a green tea (do not be confused by its name) that grows along the slopes of the Taimu mountains in the Fujian province of China. The young leaves and unopened buds are carefully gathered and processed exclusively by hand. The result is a tea that appears intricately woven with large and beautiful white tips looking like white-haired monkey's paws, hence the name. It produces a warm coloured cup, fresh and subtly seaweedy aroma infused with delicate sweetness and a slightly dry finish. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2 minutes. / IMAGE 28- GREEN PEKOE Green Pekoe is a green tea from the Fujian province of China. In professional tea terms, 'Pekoe' is actually just a grade of tea, referring to the size of the leaf. Many tea drinkers have seen this term on packages of everyday black teas (most famously, 'Orange Pekoe'). Our Green Pekoe is a lovely everyday green tea: delicate pale yellow liquor, soft texture and pleasant aroma like freshly roasted artichokes or okra. Slightly toasty and very balanced, mellow astringency. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2 minutes.
