Tasting Notes

Crafted as a black tea it is lighter, more ethereal than later harvests - almost like a silky green tea but with heady florals, deep richness and all the verdant sweetness of spring. It infuses to a pale golden cup.

Quantity

Use 0.1 oz of leaf per 5.5 fl oz of water (2.5g per 150ml).

Temperature

For a green style infusion use 167Β°F (75Β°C) water.

For a black style infusion use water at 185Β°F (85Β°C).

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.

Infusions

You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.
