Firstly let's look at Organic Gyokuro, which some call Japan's finest tea and this JING example is a whole leaf green tea grown in Kagoshima, Kyushu. Gyokuro is considered a high grade tea because it's grown in the shade and plucked in the early months of spring! It also requires specific processing techniques, making it a sensitive tea that should be brewed gently at around 60c.

Hojicha Green tea is another great choice for the festive and winter times as it's "roasted in a porcelain pot over a charcoal fire turning the leaves a reddish-brown and giving it a rich warming taste". Don't be afraid to drink this tea if you've had a lot of food (and who hasn't this time of year?!) as it's great with food and also low in caffeine!
