Ingredients

Organic and Fair Trade Certified™ green tea.

Water Temperature: 180°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Infusion Time: 3-4 minutes

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tealeaves and the length of the infusion time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn’t recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

Jade Cloud, More Than Just Chinese Green Tea

Jade Cloud is a lively green tea created over a decade ago in collaboration with artisans at the Xuan En Organic Yisheng Tea Cooperative in the remote mountains of Hubei province. Three different styles of green tea (steamed, oven-baked and roasted) are combined to make a deliciously smooth everyday green tea inspired by the classic Chinese green tea known as Wulu. Jade Cloud is grown from hardy tea cultivars like Long Jing #43 and Hubei E-Cha #10, and is harvested entirely by hand from the middle to the end of April according to “two leaves and a bud” plucking standard. Savory notes from steamed tea leaves are expertly balanced with the toasted chestnut flavor and flowery aromas of baked and roasted lots.

Founded in 2005, the Cooperative represents over 2,000 families that have benefitted from Fair Trade social premium funds. These funds have provided for investment in rural infrastructure, a new regional hospital, and grants for hundreds of impoverished farming children to attend primary school. Your purchase of this Fair Trade tea supports the preservation of centuries-old green tea culture by allowing traditional farming families to participate in a globalized tea economy while earning a sustainable living wage.
