variety: green pekoe
ingredients: green tea
price level: $$$$
Green tea from the Fujian province of China. In professional tea terms, 'Pekoe' is actually just a grade of tea, referring to the size of the leaf. Many tea drinkers have seen this term on packages of everyday black teas (most famously, 'Orange Pekoe'). Our Green Pekoe is a lovely everyday green tea: delicate pale yellow liquor, soft texture and pleasant aroma like freshly roasted artichokes or okra. Slightly toasty and very balanced, mellow astringency. Steep at 180°F for 2 minutes
Definitely an interesting tea. Makes me feel healthy.
