Description: Inspired by a relentlessly cold and snowy West Coast winter, we decided to make a tea born of a true Canadian experience. Frost-bitten leaves and stressed branches form the structure for this Japanese-style Hojicha green tea. Harvested and processed by hand, the leaves and twigs are then cold smoked with Big Leaf Maple chips from a tree felled on the property.
Tasting Notes: The taste starts as a woodsy roasted green tea that leaves a sweet, smoky linger on the palate.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup; 90ºC water; Steep covered for 5-8 minutes. Enjoy the aroma and your first sip. Re-steep 3 times.
