Shan First Flush Green Tea


  • This tea is considered to be the freshest and most sought after tea.  Shan First Flush Reserve tea is the first harvest in the year and only occurs once a year, usually in early April. 

    This is light and vibrant, with a vegetative note and a lovely hint of citrus-y flavor that is especially noticed toward the finish and in the aftertaste. As one of our reviews put it: "Many vegetative green teas have a “buttery” taste to them, but I don’t really notice a strong buttery note here.  Instead, it’s as if the “veggies” were accented with a squeeze of lemon rather than a drizzle of melted butter.  My palate feels very refreshed after each sip." 

    Because it comes in limited quantities, it is considered a reserve tea.
