We source the top 5% of tea leaves in the world
Pique is made in partnership with the leading tea masters and tea farmers around the world. Using ingredients sourced direct from trusted farms in India, China and Sri Lanka at their peak freshness.
Unlike other green teas, our sencha trees are shaded for the last 10 days prior to harvest to stop the growth of leaves while roots continue to draw nutrients from the ground. These rich nutrients are packed into the tender leaves to create a tea richer in both flavor and antioxidants.
Tea leaves are freshly harvested in the early spring and stored until the late summer when jasmine flowers are in bloom. Jasmine flowers are picked early in the day when the small petals are tightly closed. The flowers are kept cool until nightfall. When jasmine flowers open at night and release their fragrance, this is when our tea scenting takes place.
