SELECT LOOSE LEAF GREEN TEAS
IN NEW PACKAGING
Beginning this fall, The Green Teaist will make available, in limited quantities, five new pure, loose leaf green teas of Japan in vacuum packs which will, for the first time in the packaging of leaf teas, incorporate a "degassing valve," permitting excess air to be squeezed out of the package after opening. This will ensure that the teas remain fresh for a longer time.
The leaf teas will complement the TGT® Tea Sachets as many customers have requested the convenience of prepackaged loose leaf green teas which are not readily available in most top line grocers and tea shops. The following premium green teas of Kyoto and Shizuoka will soon be available at The Green Teaist® Salons in Lake Forest and Beverly Hills, online and selected fine retailers.
