Wild Orchard | Early Spring Green

The contrasting profiles of brandy and green tea create an interesting combination. Opt for a lighter and fruitier brandy with subtle oak notes, such as a younger Cognac or an American brandy. The gentle flavors of the brandy can harmonize with the delicate and grassy notes of the Early Spring Green Tea. This premium hand-picked first-harvest green tea from Jeju Island, located off the coast of South Korea, is the first regenerative certified organic tea. Experience the delicate flavor with hints of nectar. “The distinctive scent and taste of Early Spring are invigorating.” Six-time award winner.

The tea experts at Harney & Sons are enthusiastic about its combination of flavors, sweetness, and body. “Baicha” refers to the unusual color of the tea’s slender leaves, which are very pale, and yet not a white tea. | Green tea
