  • At 16.65% by dry weight, moon swirl green tea is one of the highest polyphenol antioxidant teas rated by independent lab tests. The quality of this hand made luxury green tea is evident from the fuzzy white tips that slowly unfurl with each steep.  Moon Swirl White Tip is grown at nearly 5000 feet above sea level in the mountains of the Hunan Province.  The early spring growth is hand plucked from only the top buds and skillfully rolled by hand.  When infused, the grass, wheat, and mild sweetness are well balanced with assertive astringency.  Due to these conditions, only a few thousand kilos are manufactured per year.
