What is Spring Green Tea?
A timeless favorite, green tea is all about freshness! Unoxidized and bright, green tea is known for its light, clean taste, natural sweetness, enticing scent, and easy-drinking feel.

Spring tea is highly sought after because green tea loses flavor and fragrance with age. So green tea fans always stock up on spring green tea and drink it until the next year's crop comes out!
White tea? Green tea?
It's a bit confusing, but even though the Chinese name of this tea literally translates to "Anji White Tea", it is actually a super fresh and flavorful green tea! The "White" in the name refers to the bright, translucent color of the steeped leaves.
Known for it's very smooth mouth feel, Anji white tea has a soft, clean taste followed by a sweet finish. The leaves are long and pointy, and unfurl beautifully in water.
Jesse Says: This tea reminds me of when lived in Shanghai for half a year in 2017 as a writer and cast member on the Chinese version of SNL. Anji is very close to Shanghai and I had the hookup with the farmers. I drank this stuff three times a day to keep writing all day. Those same farmers are sending us this year's crop!

The Perfect Summer Tea
While green tea can be consumed year-round, it is especially prized during summer, because of its lower, cooler steeping temperature and crisp, easy-drinking flavor.

And while it's not a traditional Chinese method, green tea makes for an excellent cold brew or iced tea!

Jesse Says:

White Anji is a favorite green tea of mine! The leaves are pale in color and the tea has a fantastic, clean "sweet water" taste.

This tea also responds particularly well to cold brewing, or even being thrown in a water bottle for half an hour and slowly brewing at room temperature.

Jesse's Teahouse started because Jesse realized the quality and value of the tea directly from China was so much higher than what could be easily found in the States -- and around the world.
Jesse contacted his tea friends, they shipped their best teas to him, and he sends them to you. That's it!

These teas are high quality and can be re-steeped multiple times! Each serving makes between 4-8 cups of tea, so at around $.50 a cup, you get top quality Chinese teas at a price that you can enjoy every day.

Jesse believes the key to making good tea is to help his Chinese tea friends share not just their best teas, but the best ways to make the teas.

That's why each box comes also comes with an info card that tells you:

  • Tea Origin
  • Steep Temperature
  • Steep Time
  • Directions for both teapot steeping and gaiwan steeping

All Jesse’s Teahouse Tea Friends (that’s you now!) also get access to private YouTube videos where Jesse and his Chinese tea friends show you how to make the teas and explain the tea-making process. 

The links are on QR codes on the back of the info card included in the tea box.

Don't Forget Your Tea Pets!

In Chinese Gongfu Tea Tradition, Tea Pets accompany you at teatime and you "raise" them by feeding them tea! Check out the tea pets at the bottom of this page.
