Our newest tea partner, Phuc Long supplies fine, whole-leaf green tea from Vietnam. Minimally processed; you can click on the pictures of the leaves below and see they are still slightly silvery. The silvering is what makes white tea "white", and is an indication of the youth of the baby leaves and the minimal handling. The packaging is both beautiful and convenient: inside, the tea is packed in a foil bag for freshness.
Personally, we love a low-astringency green tea, so we like to brew this at a lower temperature (170°) and re-use the leaves. The first brew has a pleasant sharpness, while the second brew is incredibly smooth. We recommend trying this at least once to see if you love it, too.
Net weight: 100 grams.
This tea is available in three varieties.
Lotus Green Tea
Like jasmine green tea, lotus tea is regular green tea that has been scented with lotus blossoms. You can tell this is a natural scent because a few lotus petals remain in the mix as proof (they enhance the aroma, too!). As is traditional for lotus tea, this is a "sticks and leaves" tea, meaning it contains both the top leaves and the tip of their stem, to complement the lotus flavor.
If you've never tried lotus tea, you've been missing out! It's always a smash hit when we taste-test it at markets and parties. The lotus aroma is difficult to describe, but it has hints of chamomile and a subtle richness. It's also a bit naturally sweet. Particularly refreshing when iced!
Classic Green Tea
Pure, fresh green tea. Nothing added. Clean, bright flavor and delicate aroma.
Jasmine Green Tea
Pure green tea, scented with jasmine petals. The jasmine aroma is distinct but not overpowering. This is a very balanced tea, and very fresh-tasting. A few natural jasmine petals remain in the tea, enhancing the aroma and demonstrating its authenticity.
It is authentic Lotus tea and fast delivery
It is fast delivery. It takes 3 days from order to delivery MA to California. Lens Coffee sent your package to USPS 2 days prioritey. I ordered Phuc Long Lotus tea. It is authentic Phuc Long Lotus tea. I can tell it authentic because i am Lotus tea drink guru.

Rejuvenating Lotus flavor
The "rejuvenating" part of this tea is really the great flavor that remind of my childhood moment sharing a cup of freshly brewed lotus tea with my grandma. This the best lotus tea that I ever have, I highly recommend it to any tea connoisseur. Who knows, it might even help you create some best moment in your life.

Bought this for my wife, as we had this brand while on vacation in Vietnam. Didn't think we would find it back in US. Wonderful tea, fragrant and delicious. Also works well in a milk tea brew.

Best Lotus tea
The taste of lotus seed tea is described by some as bit bitter with a flowery chaser; the Phuc Long lotus tea has even smoother taste and left you with the best fragrant calming hot drink

The Araku Valley of India
India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the blight of 1870, when growers needed to hybridize to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other unique, resistant species.
