Tasting Notes

The unique flavour of one of the rarest and most exquisite green teas is reminiscent of sweet gooseberries and pineapple cake. It has a velvety soft mouth feel with subtle notes of honeydew melon and tonka bean.

Quantity

Use 0.1 oz of leaf per 5.5 fl oz of water. (2g per 150ml).

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use 158Β°F (70Β°C) water.

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.

Infusions

You can infuse this tea at least three times. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavor are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

75Β’ per cup based on 0.1 oz of tea per 5.1 fl oz of water and 3 infusions.

As with all our exquisite loose leaf green teas, we recommend using lower temperature water. For Waikato Green we'd recommend trying a lower temperature (around 65Β°C/149Β°F) and a longer steep (around 2 minutes), but please do experiment with higher temperatures and a shorter infusion to bring out the flavors you most enjoy.
