Product Description

Details

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

Rooibos Herbal Tea

Rooibos (Afrikaans for Red Bush) is an herb found only in the Cedarberg Mountain region of South Africa. It is a member of the legume family of plants (Aspalathus linearis) with bright green, needle-like leaves that turn red upon processing. Brewed rooibos has a distinctive red color and is subtly sweet by nature, with an earthy, honey flavor. Easy to drink hot or iced.
