The tell tale signs of silver tips in this tea signify their harvesting has been selective and as such must have to be plucked every day to ensure only new shoots are gathered. Grown in the mountainous region of the WuYi mountains whilst Congou Mao Jia is a green tea, the tea is allowed to ferment briefly which results in the dry leaves having a dark hue. A smooth tasting tea, though surprisingly pungent, it would be a good first green tea to try if you've traditionally drunk black tea.Supplied by Jenier World Teas

Ethical Tea Partnership
Jenier World of Teas source all our teas through member organisations of the Ethical Tea Partnership. The Ethical Tea Partnership has a goal to provide consumers with a totally transparent perspective on where tea is grown and manufactured. All aspects of the quality of lives for those living and working on tea estates is covered including fair compensation health coverage, housing and childcare.
The ETP runs monitoring and improvement programmes to help tea producers improve against the Ethical Tea Partnership Global Standard, and all audits are carried out by independent third-part auditors. Whilst similar to Fair trade, the ETP is totally focussed on tea and is able to address the many individual nuances and regional peculiarities within the tea trade. ETP also differs from Fair Trade in that its primary focus isn't economics, but is also very much led by the social and environmental aspects of the tea trade. This approach is helpful as where higher prices are paid in developing countries it addresses the concern of unscrupulous companies bolstering lost margins further along the supply chain.
