New Limited Special Arrivals: Spring 2022 Green teas from Uji, Kyoto and Mengding Mountain, Sichuan Province

We just received small batches of beautiful Spring 2022 green teas – one Shincha produced by Mr. Yoshida’s farms in the Uji tea growing region of Kyoto, Japan, and one Ming Qian tea grown in the Mengding mountain ranges of Sichuan Province in China.

Both teas are wonderfully lively and have some history attached to them – the Mengding region is famous for producing quality teas and is an historical cradle for tea cultivation in China. The Mengding Ganlu green tea was reserved for imperial tribute during the Tang dynasty and is a great treat for anyone who is already a fan of Bi Luo Chun or Dragon Well teas. Meanwhile, Mr. Yoshida’s family have been producing tea in Uji, Kyoto, for 16 generations and their family’s method of hand-kneading tea leaves was named an intangible cultural property in 1970. Among the tea gardens Mr. Yoshida tends, one garden (located at the Kozan-Ji temple in Kyoto) is one of the oldest tea gardens in all of Japan.

Take advantage! Pick up a package at any of our locations in Washington DC: Teaism Tea Shop in Penn Quarter, Teaism Dupont Circle, or Teaism Lafayette Park. Or order online here.

A New Organic Tisane! Sip on Rolling Meadows


Friends, this project has been in the works for some time now and we are so excited to announce the addition of Organic Rolling Meadows to our line of Tisanes. As far as nurturing, soothing, and uplifting qualities, this blend has got everything but the kitchen sink: nettle, raspberry leaf, mullein, 3 varieties of tulsi (holy basil), hibiscus, rose petal, hemp seed, cardamom and calendula. Herbaceous, mellow, aromatic – just right.

Currently this blend is available at the Teaism Tea Shop in Penn Quarter and for sale online. We will have it available for purchase at all Teaism locations soon. We can’t wait to share it with you!
