We think you'll be delighted by this tea. The characteristically intense flavor of the herb infuses sweet minty notes that blend beautifully with the tea's mellow and slightly smoky profile. The particular tea we've used is Pekoe Gunpowder from the Uva region of Sri Lanka. Green Gunpowder is produced by forgoing the fermentation process required to produce black tea. Instead, the leaves are steamed as soon as they are plucked and then hand-rolled into small round pellets. Once immersed in water, these pellets gracefully open to reveal a full leaf. Gunpowder teas typically have a dark coppery green color, and produce a pale yellowy green infusion, with a smooth, slightly smoky cup with a sweetish finish. The tea is highly receptive to the addition of our natural flavorings and produces a very satisfying brew. Make yourself a pot today and enjoy a cup of this minty fresh tea! This one is unbelievable over ice.

HOT TEA BREWING RECOMMENDATIONS:
Place 1 teaspoon of herbal tea for each 7-9oz/200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time, the better the flavor as more fruit and herb flavor is extracted). Garnish and sweeten to taste & enjoy!
IDEAL BREWING TEMPERATURE:100º
ICED TEA PREPARATION RECOMMENDATIONS:
Place 2 slightly heaping teaspoons of herbal tea into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml per serving over the herbal tea. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed herb & fruit tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted.
