Original Albuquerque Blends
Green tea has been revered in the Far East for thousands of years, and it is continuing to grow in popularity in the West because of its bright, floral and/or fruity flavor and medicinal properties. Hadley’s Tea has a wide variety of green tea blends you can enjoy in our café or purchase to make the perfect cup at home!
About Green Tea
Green tea is made from the buds and first leaf tips of the Camellia sinensis plant. It undergoes minimal oxidation during processing, leaving many of its antioxidant properties intact. Green tea is also low in caffeine, making it an ideal beverage at any time of day.
Green teas should be steeped for two to three minutes max. Unlike black teas, the distinctive flavor of green teas will not strengthen with longer steeping. In fact, over-steeping (any time longer than three minutes) may result in a bitter taste.
Our Green Tea Varieties
The natural floral tones of green tea make it an excellent base for fruit and flower blends. Hadley’s Tea has some of the most unique green tea blends, including:
We also have superfruit tea blends with high antioxidant content, and organic varieties!
