Tasting Notes:A faintly honeyed aroma develops into a sweet and gently toasty palate. The combination of a smooth and gently floral white tea, with slightly peppery leaves of dried purple tulsi, produce a sophisticated steep that is both grounded and delicate. Wonderful hot or iced (using the cold-steep method).
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 85ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.
We invite you to experience our very unique twelve artisan-blended, loose leaf teas inspired by the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac – Rat, Pig, Horse, Goat, Rooster, Ox, Snake, Monkey, Tiger, Dog, Rabbit, Dragon.
We crafted the line of teas so that there would be something for every palate. The final result is four black teas, four green teas and four herbal infusions each conforming to some degree to the characteristics of the animal they represent.
The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
