An unusual varietal reflects unique regional characteristics in coloration, leaf size and taste. This is one of the strongest tasting green teas we offer.   Lot # 7 - harvested April 2017.

Why we selected this particular lot.  It is an unusual tea and we have offered it for many years.  It has unique characteristics that can be enjoyed on an everyday basis as it is low cost and offers a range of tastes.  This lot offered a large leaf, consistency in size and a pleasing aroma, albeit strong. 

Tasting notes.  This is a strong green with some hints of fruit.  There is a sweetness that comes forth in the finish that is quite pleasing.  It aroma is strong and vegetal.  The leaves are high fire.

Brewing suggestions.  Three grams is our recommendation for 8-12 ounces of water.  Use a water temperature of 185-195 degrees F.  Steep for 2 minutes and taste.  The tea can steep longer for added body.

As the older brother of a disabled person, Ned Heagerty, Silk Road Teas President, recognized the challenges and limited opportunities disabled adults face. So he wanted to make a difference. It is a small step, but it is an action we believe in and will continue to follow.
