Product Description

Details

Procured from the same cultivar as Lapsang Souchong, this is definitely not the smoky tea those familiar with traditional Lapsang Souchong would expect. The plucking is from supple young growth, as you may be able to tell from the thin wiry leaves. The leaves are then processed in the classic Chinese fashion of rolling, oxidizing, and finalized by drying. The end result is a chocolate bouquet and flavor, with soft maltiness and a pleasant sweetness with little to no astringency.

Steep Time: 1-4 min
Water Temp: 200°-212°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1.5
Infusions: 1-3

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
