The days of the old Tai-pan may be over, but this fantastic tea remains. Still manufactured according to the old techniques, this tea has a very fine, emerald leaf that infuses to produce a mild yellow-green liquor. The cup is sweet, with hints of an almost Sencha like clover-butteriness, grassy notes and a long exceptionally smooth finish. An incredible tea with an amazing story to match. Brew a pot and give your customers the deluxe treatment!
Hot tea brewing method: When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly, about 3 times. The secret is to use water that is about 180F or 90C. Place about 1-1 1/2 teaspoons in your cup, let the tea steep for about 3 minutes and then begin enjoying a cup of enchantment, do not remove the leaves from the cup. Once the water level is low - add more water, and so on and so on - until the flavor of the tea is exhausted.
Iced tea-brewing method: (to make 1 qt): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.
