Product Description

Details

During the early 19th century, many black and oolong teas had a characteristic woody, smoked flavor, due to the use of wood-fired woks. At the request of English merchants, this smoking process was performed intentionally. In the smokehouse, tea leaves are hung from bamboo baskets above smoking wood-pine ash. The flavor is very smoky, enjoyably smooth and uplifting. Compliments well with slightly spicy and oily foods. You’ll either love it or hate it.

Steep Time: 3-4 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
