Jade Sword ™ Tea Bags

有机毛尖绿茶

Grown among misty mountains in a remote part of Hunan province, our Organic Jade Sword ™ is spring-picked at an altitude of 800m, from a garden rich with biodiversity. The garden had been abandoned in the early '90s and was revived in 2007 by tea master Zhou Wei, when he saw an opportunity to help the local minority ethnic people. He has been producing organic tea ever since, providing locals with the chance to build a community and a home. Please dispose of your used tea bags in your council food waste bin.

    Absolute favourite

    I tried the Explorer range of tea bags and was sceptical about this. How it proved me wrong - a fresh flavour with no bitterness. Off to purchase in its own right. Reading other reviews has also raised the possibility of more infusions from the same bag. Ive been using it twice with good results of taste. One small point, vital for a novice like me, the directions on the packet say 2-3 minutes whilst on the tea bag tag, they say more..

    Very direct, single taste

    It is a plain green tea that offers a very clear character. Similar to other comparatively strong green teas from China or Viet Nam, it is for Green Tea lovers who are used to a very direct taste with little other tastes on the side. I personally would not say it sticks out extraordinarily, thus I only give it 4 out of 5 stars.

    BEST GREEN TEA I HAVE EVER TASTED!

    I have been drinking green tea for a few years now ad have tried practically every green tea on the market. I came across the Jade Sword green tea a couple of weeks ago and I can honestly say it is the best green tea I have ever tried! Although it may be a little pricier than others, I would highly recommend this tea for anyone to try. Usually when I drink green tea I use a new bag every time. However, with this one it lasts for about 3-4 cups. Definitely recommended!

    jade sword

    My husband and I are on the same page as far as this tea is concerned and although we always used to use loose tea leaves - this is even better cos they are loose but user friendly.

    Best green tea ever

    I've been drinking Jing's Organic Jade Sword for several years now and simply haven't found a better green tea. Each bag is good for a couple of refreshing cups. Perfect after a meal or just when you want to relax with with a hot drink before bed.
