Thunder Dragon Green

Thunder Dragon Green


An exclusive from In Pursuit of Tea! This green tea, grown in Samcholing, Bhutan, has never before been exported. The tea fields are located at the summer palace of the second king, and were originally planted in the 1950s. A collective of 27 women now operate the 10-acre farm, hand-picking, pan-firing and rolling the small leaves into a simple twist shape.

The fruity, smooth flavor is well balanced, with vegetal notes of cucumber, and a toasted cocoa powder aroma. Unlike many green teas, the leaves can stand up to multiple steepings—try four or five. Read our blog post all about this unique tea and enjoy the taste of a new tradition!
