Melon is just delicious isn't it?! We think so and thats why we have decided to stock this amazing blooming tea with the most delightful notes of melony goodness! This is really a perfect tea to enjoy with friends and family for gatherings.


This beautiful set up of flowers is known as Hua Hao Yue Yuan in Chinese means good flower and round moon; this uses a round jasmine flower ring on the open tea leaves to express the flower and round moon. Chinese like using the word Hua Hao Yue Yuan to describe the Mid-Autumn Festival, when the moon is perfectly round and bright at night, and the osmanthus flowers are in bloom adding to the atmosphere with fragrance. And also in Chinese literature, round has the indication of intactness and harmony, the word is used to express the union of family, friends getting along with each other well.

It surprises many people new to tea to learn that green tea and black tea originate from the same exact plant species—Camellia sinensis. It’s ultimately the variety of tea plant and how the tea leaves are processed that defines how green tea becomes “green” and black tea becomes “black”.


Typically, green teas are brewed in short infusions at around 160 to 180 degrees. Don’t scorch your tea! If the water is too hot, especially for green tea, your tea will release more bitterness and astringency more quickly.


Using about 1 pod of tea per one five cup pot of water is a safe bet. 


Always start with fresh, pure, cold filtered water when you brewing tea. Spring water is the best. 


Cover your tea while it steeps to keep all the heat in the steeping vessel.


Most high-quality loose leaf white teas can be steeped multiple times.

Please, no more than 12 oz.
