This 100% organic green tea is grown 6,500 feet above sea level at the Bogawantalawa Tea Estate, located in the highlands of Sri Lanka. The tea leaves are plucked in the first hours of the day when the morning dew enhances their sweetness, yielding a natural slight aroma of sweet grass. This medium-bodied tea has sweet, grassy flavor with a slight hint of smokiness.
Aroma: Light sweet grass
Flavor: Sweet, grassy with a slight hint of smokiness
Begin with fresh, bottled or filtered water. Bring the water just to a boil. Place one teaspoon of tea leaves per 8 oz cup of water into a teapot or infuser or place one tea bag directly into a 12 to 16oz cup. Pour water directly over the tea leaves or tea bag. Note that over-steeped tea will become bitter. For stronger tea add more leaves rather than infusing longer than recommended.
