Far Leaves Tea in Berkeley sources exceptionally high-quality teas from around the world. We now carry three Far Leaves premium teas at Umami Mart for your sipping pleasure:
If you need a little caffeine boost during the day, we recommend Matcha Sencha. It combines two traditional Japanese green teas – sharp, raw sencha and bright, sweet matcha powder. Aside from being potent, it’s also delicious and complex too, with notes of moss, broth, and kelp. Far Leaves sources both teas for its Matcha Sencha from Kyushu Island in Japan.
For lovers of black tea who are looking for something different, we suggest White Tip Oolong. This fragrant and earthy medium-caffeinated tea is gathered from the steep slopes of Pinglin, Taiwan. It brews into a rich tea with notes of honey, orange blossom, and melon.
Rest Well is an organic herbal infusion that is a blend of chamomile, mint, lavender, and valerian root. These natural, caffeine-free ingredients are known for their relaxing properties. As you’d expect from a good botanical tea, Rest Well is a fragrant and flavorful melange. Drink this tea before bed, or anytime you need a peaceful respite from your busy life.
