From the first tea leaf steeped in hot water there have been discoveries in tea. Hojicha is one of the bolder experiments. During the 1920's a tea master in Kyoto, Japan innovated a new method of producing tea. The traditional method of steaming is still used in most Japanese teas today. Instead, Hojicha is manufactured by baking newly plucked leaves in a porcelain bowl over a charcoal fire. The end result, green and brown variegated leaves with a grassy toasted flavor that is low in caffeine. Tea brews a reddish tan and due to lower caffeine is a preferred tea for after dinner, children and the elderly.

White Eagle Long Life is a Mao Feng style green tea that produces champagne colored full rounded cup flavored with honey like sweetness, mild astringency and hints of orchid. Manufacture of Mao Feng teas is one of the oldest styles in China and is considered to be one of their three celebrated teas. Due to this distinction, manufacture techniques are heavily regulated to ensure authenticity in every sip.
