Jun Chiyabari regularly produces some of our favorite teas of the year. These are really gifted tea makers with an incredible vision for tea artistry and an openness to exploration. Their gardens are entirely organic and they practice natural farming as taught by Masanobu Fukuoka. They provide employment and growth opportunities for over 150 people, with a specific focus on providing jobs specifically to women.
Himalayan White Tips is a spring only offering using hand-picked buds and just sprouted leaves. The leaf material is lightly pressed and twisted for a very slight encouragement of oxidation. The tea liquor is silky and delicate, with a decidedly fresh and juicy flavor with hints of florals, lemon, and butter. It's truly delightful.
