Located in Boulder, Colorado, Ku Cha House of Tea, formerly known as The Leaf, was established in 2005 to bring you the finest teas around the world.
The history of tea dates back to 5000 years ago. The Chinese people first cultivated tea and drank it mostly for medicinal purposes. Since then, tea has been adopted by cultures worldwide. Right now, over 50 countries in the world produce teas. Because of its nutritional value, tea has become increasingly popular in the United States.
Drinking tea is fun. Green tea provides a light, fresh taste; black tea, a full bodied flavor; and oolong tea, a blend of both green and black tea flavors. No matter what taste you prefer, you can always find a type of tea that suits you. Tea drinks are colorful: green, yellow, black, and red. You name it! When you drink tea, you can enjoy its delightful flavor and appreciate its color.
Choose a type of tea that suits your mood or the weather. What drink can be better than a cup of iced tea on a hot summer afternoon? A warm green tea on a brisk spring morning? A flavored herbal tea on a fall night? Or a hot black tea on a cold winter morning? Explore your interest in tea right here!

For this week's free tea tasting, we will explore 3 more teas from our excellent Chinese green tea collection. Dragon Well is a very popular Chinese green tea with a pleasant nutty flavor. Er Mei is a bit more grassy and sharp with a lingering, sweet aftertaste. Tai Ping Hou Kui is smooth and subtle with unique long, flat leaves. This will be a great opportunity to get more familiar with Chinese green tea.
Tai Ping Hou Kui, A very unique tea and one of the top 10 green teas in China, this tea has a very distinctive appearance with long and flat leaves. This tea was invented in the 1900s in Tai Ping County, AnHui Province. It was a prize winner in the 1915 World Expo. Beyond its fame and the amazing craftsmanship that goes into it's production, the taste is also delightfully complex. When brewed, the tea has a subtle nutty flavor and lingering sweetness with a hint of floral notes. This is a highly recommended choice for those wishing to explore the fascinating and diverse world of Chinese green tea!
Er Mei Snow Bud, Another top 10 Chinese green tea, this one hailing from Sichuan Province. The flavor is fresh and grassy with a clear green brew. Er Mei Snow Bud was the Gold Prize winner at the 2006 Chinese National Tea Expo. Truly one of China's best green teas.
Dragon Well Superior, Also called Long Jing, this is one of the top 10 Chinese green tea from Zhejiang Province. As the top grade of Dragon Well (Dragon Well has 11 grades from Superior and grade 1 through 10), it produces a brew of golden color, distinctive nutty aroma and full, round flavor. This tea also contains the highest concentration of catechins (the major antioxidant element) among Chinese green teas.
