Succulent green leaves from select bushes with high chlorophyll content are selected for our signature green, first-flush tea. The result is a liquor with an exquisite lime brightness and sweet vegetal aroma and flavor. This tea reflects the best qualities of our high-altitude Himalayan green teas, vibrant, fresh and flavorful. Ana’s also reveals a smooth mouthfeel and a lovely sweet finish.
Anna’s Green is a tea typical to the region of Maipokhari Hills of Ilam District of Nepal. The leaves are plucked early in the season and only the tender and succulent leaves are selected for this preparation. Where ever possible High elevation plantation with wet soils facing the Himalayas are selected for this purpose. The leaves are then immediately de-enzymed and then cooled for over 1-2 hours. The leaves are then rolled to give an initial tempering and the cooled again for 30 minutes. Thereafter they are shaped in a shaping machine and then dried in an oven.
One heaping teaspoon per 8 ounce cup. Cool boiling water for 3 minutes, then steep tea 1 - 2 minutes.

Thanks to an amazing Steepster tea pal, I was able to try this one and I’m so glad I was. I have been impressed by the teas I’ve had from Nepali Tea Traders and I am looking forward to trying more.
This tea is a delicious green tea. Vibrant with a gorgeous color. There is a distinct vegetal profile but there are also hidden notes of sweetness that appear in every other sip or so.
What I think I love the most are the smooth rich velvet rich mouthfeel (just like the description of the tea) you get with every sip. The tea coats your mouth giving off such a warm and fuzzy feeling. This is one of those teas you drink while you are cuddled with your favorite book and blanket on a rainy day.
This is a tea that I can’t wait to share with the twins. They have been really getting into tea lately!
I received this tea as part of the sampler pack.
We found Ana's Green Tea a little too sensitive towards the steeping factors. I would favorably compare the flavor with a gunpowder green tea (which I'm admittedly biased against) with an extra vegetal kick.
Little changes have big impacts in the profile of this tea, so if at first you don't succeed, try again at a lower temperature for less time.
