Quail's Plume

Regular price $15.00

Style: Roasted Green

Origin: Westholme BC, Canada

Description: Based traditional Japanese Hojicha, a roasted twig and leaf tea, we created this roasted green tea from the fine twigs and leaves of our tea plants, under which local families of California Quail often make their home. Harvested and cut by hand for processing, the tea is then wok-fired at high heat to capture a comforting smooth roasted flavour. Fibrous green woody notes appear in second and third steepings.

Tasting Notes: Wok-fired at high heat to capture a satisfying and comforting, smooth roasted flavour. Fibrous green notes appear in second and third steepings.

Brewing Instructions: Use 100ºC water (full boil) and pour over twigs and leaf. Steep for 5 minutes. Your second and third re-steep offers a woodsy West Coast taste adventure. Re-steep 3 or 4 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.
