|About Spring Roses - Organically Grown Chinese Green Tea Blend
Jiangsu province in China is home to the famous Yi-Xing teapots and to the organic gardens where its green tea is cultivated. Gently rolling hills and sunny skies make its terroir optimal for growing tea. The bud and the first two leaves are plucked, heated, twisted, then dried. The resulting leaf is long, dark green, and aromatic. It is blended with Guatemalan red rose petals. These roses are not certified organically grown, but they are cultivated without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
A Few Words On Taste
The aroma is green tea and roses. The taste is fresh, and slightly herbaceous with a hint of flowery pepper. The finish is smooth and leaves a lingering flavor of sweet fruit in your mouth. Try it alone first, then add your preferred natural sweetener if desired. The addition of milk is not recommended. It is delicious iced.
