Availability:  This tea is the first tea we pluck in the early Spring before the summer heat changes the delicate flavour profile of the leaves.Due to the limited harvesting time, this tea is quite rare. Please Pre-order to guarantee that you will receive this limited harvest terroir teain late May, while supplies last. Orders will be shipped in sequence once the tea has been made.

Description: On the cusp of early Spring, we hear the riveting song of the Pacific Tree Frog echoing from the meadows and wetlands surrounding our tea garden. Their mysterious calls start at dusk, joining together to beckon in the new and untold start of our warmer seasons. 

Our Canadian-grown and hand-picked Tree Frog Green Tea consists of carefully selected tender leaves and buds from our 10 year-old tea plants. The first two leaves and a bud are steamed soon after harvesting, then rolled and wok-fired to finish. 

Tasting Notes: A soft and smooth green tea with subtle notes of citrus and a sweet, grassy vegetal linger.

Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup; Use 85ºC water (below boil) and pour lovingly over the loose leaves; Steep for 3-5 minutes. Very low astringency will allow you to steep longer if you wish and we encourage up to 3 re-steeps.

The tradition of tea is closely tied to place – the region, the mountain, the slope. In 2010 we began planting our own tea to take advantage of the unique terroir of our home. This is the very first Canadian estate-grown tea – an authentic expression of the land, soil, and climate of our farm.
Tea cultivation and processing originated in China about 5,000 years ago, and while they carry on a rich and ancient tradition of producing high-quality teas of all styles, their green varieties are truly beyond comparison. The flavour profiles, aromas, and processing techniques from each tea-growing region vary tremendously. Some become silky and smooth, while some become powerful and astringent. Whether for casual daily drinking, or for special moments of ceremony and contemplation, Chinese green teas truly nurture the soul.
