- Genmaicha Yama: a traditional Japanese tea that blends Bancha green tea with roasted brown rice.

- Sencha Ariake: a Japanese green tea, both sweet and invigorating, with a vegetal and very slightly iodized flavor, ideal for discovering the excellence of Sencha teas.

- Long Jing: one of the best reputations among Chinese teas, with its roast chestnut notes.

- Grand Yunnan Imperial: this Chinese black tea provides a subtle energy boost. It is soft and floral, with a subtle astringency and a crowd-pleasing honeyed flavor.

- Darjeeling Margaret's Hope: dark, fruity, and full of character, it stimulates without overexciting.

- Kenya Kirinyaga: this strong black tea's intense woody and honeyed notes, as well as its robust texture, make it an excellent breakfast tea.

- Pu Erh Imperial: a well-known dark tea with woody and liquorice notes that aids digestion.

- Jejudo Imperial: this Korean green tea is a hidden gem with its marine and hazelnut notes typical of spring teas and its very umami flavor.

This selection of tea was a gift for a friend, and I'm so excited that it was available. She's not a tea novice, but this will definitely help her get into some more of the teas that aren't in her regular rotation.
