Green Tea

  • Jasmine Pearls: Gently rolled pearls of South China green tea scented with fresh jasmine blossoms (It’s a very aromatic cup with a lingering sweetness.)

Oolong Tea

  • Nantou Four Seasons: Grown in central Taiwan, it has a nectar-like sweetness and floral aroma.

Herbal Tea

  • Chamomile: A beloved classic with calming notes of honey and fig (The whole flowers, harvested in Croatia, have a sweet fragrance.)

  • Mint: This is an aromatic and smooth tea.
  • Rooibos: A full-bodied infusion packed with antioxidants.
