Product Description


The Vithanakande Estate is located at a relatively low altitude in the Western lowland growing regions of Sri Lanka. In operation since 1982, they have produced quite a bit of tea, and this EFLLOP (extra fancy long leaf orange pekoe) is a solid example of a nice, everyday cup. The brew is mildly astringent with notes of tobacco and sugarcane.

Steep Time: 2-3 min
Water Temp: 200°-212°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 1

Japan Gyokuro "Jade Dew" Green Tea

Gyokuro is the pinnacle of Japanese loose leaf green tea. During the annual spring harvest leaves are shaded for around 20 days to increase the potency of the plant. While shaded, the plant continues to produce chlorophyll, but the natural cycle of the sunlight bleaching the leaves is inhibited. The plant also pulls more nutrients from the soil as it is not able to convert the sunshine into energy for itself. The harvest consists of the collection of just the top 3 leaves, which are quickly cut and steamed. The flavor is richly creamy, sweet, and oceanic.

Steep Time: 1-2 min
Water Temp: 140°-170°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 3
