Swirling waters shimmer with melodic movement. A ballet of color as two bodies glide by one another. Wisdom gained through a century of swims.
In art, as in a cup of tea, color evokes mood. So we have collaborated with Pantone Color Institute in the design of our artwork
. By uniting TEA + ART, we hope you feel ENLIGHTENED with our Organic Long Life Green.

This blend is the modern blender’s version of the famous Gunpowder tea; an an innovative attempt to harmonize the dichotomy in the green tea world. Japanese green teas, like Senchas, are steam-fired whereas oven-firing is more distinctive to the Chinese style. Due to the positive and negative features of both traditions, innovation was required to accentuate the desired profiles while off-setting bitterness. Thus, each ingredient was carefully blended to yield a balanced, complex and fresh green character while mitigating the tannins and seaweed aroma.
