Maple Smoked Green

Regular price $15.00

Style: Roasted Green

Origin: Westholme BC, Canada

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.

The tradition of tea is closely tied to place – the region, the mountain, the slope. In 2010 we began planting our own tea to take advantage of the unique terroir of our home. This is the very first Canadian estate-grown tea – an authentic expression of the land, soil, and climate of our farm.
Tea cultivation and processing originated in China about 5,000 years ago, and while they carry on a rich and ancient tradition of producing high-quality teas of all styles, their green varieties are truly beyond comparison. The flavour profiles, aromas, and processing techniques from each tea-growing region vary tremendously. Some become silky and smooth, while some become powerful and astringent. Whether for casual daily drinking, or for special moments of ceremony and contemplation, Chinese green teas truly nurture the soul.
