Fun Facts:

Twenty days before the harvest of the tea leaves the plants are covered, shading them from direct sunlight. This process generates a deeper green in the leaves because it increases the leaves' level of chlorophyll. The flavor is also intensified due to the increase in L-theanine as well as other compounds. This all results in a healthy, unique, and flavorful cup.
