High Energy Green Tea
Brewing: 1 tsp per cup ~ 80°C ~ 5-7 mins
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!
- 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.
