High Energy Green Tea
Country of Origin: China.
Region: Hunan Province.
Cup Characteristics: The tea tends light liquoring, fresh and smooth with reasonable depth and body. The lemon flavour and subtle ginger hints give the tea a wonderful exotic character.
Infusion: Pale yellow-green.
Ingredients: Green tea (55 %), ginger pieces, lemon peel, Brazilian Mate, Guayusa, peppermint, natural flavouring, matcha-powder (1%) , chlorella algae powder.
Caffeine Content: Very High.
This is a tea designed for people to face early mornings, especially when they don't want to. The Mate and matcha powder add extra caffeine into the blend. Unlike coffee this caffeine combines with L-theanine to give a boost that lasts for hours and wears off slowly increasing your ability to stay focused and calm.
This tea was made by morning grouches for morning grouches. And for early birds of course! Green tea combined with Mate, guayusa, Matcha and chlorella algae gets a fresh kick out of cool mint, sweet and spicy ginger and tart lemon. This tea will bring a smile to late risers even before 9 am. A great way to start the day!
Hot Tea Brewing Method
Heat water to 75-80°C (175°F). Place 1 teaspoon of green tea per cup into your teapot, and add 1 for the pot (for a more intense flavour, add a bit more tea). Pour the water into the pot and let it steep for about 5-7 minutes. Pour into your cup and enjoy.
Alternatively, put the tea in a tea infuser and brew right in your cup. When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly - about 3 times.
Some like to brew this straight in the cup without an infuser, but be careful not to drink the leaves at the bottom of your cup. The pattern of the leaves is said to tell your fortune.
Milk not recommended for green tea.
Iced Tea Brewing Method
Make as for hot, but add extra tea - a rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the amount of tea used per cup. When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice. It is important to make it a little stronger as the ice will water it down.
Alternatively, you can cold brew the tea by placing the tea leaves in a jug and adding cold water. Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge) strain and enjoy. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.
