Brew up a cup of this full-leaf tea and experience spring renewel in every sip.

How to Prepare

Did You Know?

Tazo® China Green Tips is made from a tea known as Mao Feng, which in Chinese translates loosely as "hairy crab" – an apt description of the twisted and rolled dry leaf.

Green Tea

To make green tea, plucked Camellia sinensis leaves are air-dried, steamed or pan-fired to neutralize natural oxidizing enzymes in the leaf, causing it to retain its green color and fresh vegetative flavor. After exposure to heat, the soft, flexible leaves are ready for rolling by hand or with machines into distinctive shapes. Then they are dried until the moisture level is reduced to about 4%, locking their flavor inside until contact with water. Tazo purchases teas in their original container as packed at the garden to help ensure the tea stays garden fresh.
