The lush tropical paradise of Sri Lanka (Ceylon) gives birth to this most precious loose leaf tea. The superb balance of gentle, floral notes and a brisk, grassy twang produce a highly refreshing cup.

Simply a world class tea from the renowned Idulgashinna Estate; one of the first tea gardens in the world to receive organic certification.

    Ceylon green tea doesn't taste like Japanese green teas. the Ceylon green tea has a mild flavor. this tea is not bitter.

    I love a good quality brisk green tea and this fits the bill perfectly. We discovered Zhi Tea on a trip to Austin to visit our son who is at UT. I am glad we did! The little tea shop on the east side of town is fantastic and the people there really know their stuff! They let me try a few (on the house) and I decided on a few (Berry Hibiscus - very good, Tropical Green - GREAT!, and another green from Japan, haven't tried yet). I am loving this tea. I do a 2 1/2 minute steep with a heaping teaspoon per cup and it comes out perfectly. Vegetal and smooth with just a hint of briskness. Not bitter and you can tell it is high quality. I also like that it is Fair Trade, but I wouldn't drink it if I didn't like it and i LOVE IT! Thanks Zhi! Hope to see you soon.

    I like this tea, apparently more than some of the other reviewers! I am making it iced and it is brisk, clean, and very refreshing. Just don't over steep it, people! Three minutes is perfect, with a just under boiling water and you are good to go. I think this is really underrated!

    A bit astringent, but fair enough.

    Loving the green teas I am getting from Zhi and this is no exception.

    Great flavor, great presentation, and fast shipping. ZHI Tea No1 in my book.

    Not bad at all for a Ceylon green tea.

Water: 195°F | Leaves: 1 tsp per 6 ounce cup | Infusion Time: 3 minutes

Basic Steeping Tips
- Use filtered or spring water, whenever possible
- Don’t over-boil water
- Remove leaves after recommended time (adjust to taste)
- If you want stronger tea, use more leaves instead of steeping for a longer time
Leaves can be re-steeped 2-3 times resulting in various flavor differences. Don’t throw out those leaves until they have given it all up!
Green tea has been researched a great deal over the last 20 years. Results indicate that the catechins in green tea are responsible for a lowered risk of heart disease, lowered risk of cancer (especially prostate and breast), and potential reduction in onset of Alzeheimer's.
Sri Lanka, previously Ceylon, is the world’s fourth largest producer of tea. Ceylon green tea is mainly made from Assamese tea stock. It is grown in Idalgashinna in Uva Province. Idalgashinna is located in the Badulla District in the Haputale-Namunukula mountain range. It is a beautiful region, about 5300 feet above sea level with a spectacular view. The green teas from Sri Lanka are generally darker in both the dry and infused leaf, and their flavor is richer.

Many say that this type of green tea is an acquired taste. Ceylon green teas have a fuller body and a more pungent, rather malty, nutty flavor. As the world associates green tea with more of the lighter and more delicate taste of Chinese and Japanese green teas, Ceylon green tea producers are starting to use less of the Assamese tea stock and more of the Chinese, Indonesian, Japanese and Brazilian seed base.
