JusTea's Golden Green loose leaf tea serves up warm flavors of toasted rice and coconut. This green tea is low in caffeine and packed with antioxidants. Carefully hand processed leaves are packaged in a beautiful reusable tin, paired with a hand-carved wild olive wood spoon.

JusTea is dedicated to maintaining the whole tea leaf rather than the normal maceration which destroys much of the leaf’s natural complexities and depth. This allows the tea to be steeped multiple times, retaining the full flavor profile that whole leaf tea offers.

Each 100g tin includes a hand-carved wooden spoon and makes about 40 cups or when re-steeping, 80 cups. A recyclable refill pouch is now also available. Steeping Instructions: 1 teaspoon at 175°F for 3 mins (for a second cup, re-steep 6+ mins).
