AROMATIC BLENDED BLACK TEA
Earl Grey takes its name from the 2nd Earl Grey, a British Prime Minister in the 1830s, who reputedly received a gift of tea flavoured with bergamot oil. This aromatic black tea comes from the homeland of tea trees in the Chinese province of Yunnan and from the high mountains of Sri Lanka. A premium loose-leaf tea, it combines the wiry, regular leaf of spicy Ceylon with the elegance of Yunnan and natural bergamot from France. The result is a highly aromatic tea with lemon notes – a morning classic.
Our Earl Grey has just won a gold star award in the Great Taste Awards 2013.
JAPANESE GREEN TEA – CEREMONIAL GRADE
Our award-winning Matcha Aoarashi is prepared during traditional Japanese tea ceremonies. The leaves have been steamed, rolled and dried, then stone-ground to a fine, green tea powder. The intense green of the leaves is achieved by growing the tea bushes under shade for 3 weeks prior to harvesting. This increases the chlorophyll content of the leaf. When drinking Matcha, the entire tea leaf is ingested so this energy boosting drink contains high levels of antioxidants.
Matcha is made by grinding high quality tea leaves, called tencha. This offers great health benefits as you actually consume the tea leaf, rather than just an infusion of the tea leaves. Rich in antioxidants research has shown matcha can boost metabolism and help reduce cholesterol levels so is great as part of a healthy diet.
How To Use
Matcha can be drunk as tea or used in cooking:
- Usucha, or thin tea, is prepared with 1.75g of matcha and 75ml of hot water (70-80 °C). Use a bamboo whisk to create froth as desired.
- Koicha, or thick tea used in the Tea Ceremony, is prepared with 3.75g of matcha and 40ml of hot water (70-80 °C), stir rather than whisk.
- Use to make matcha lattes, milkshakes, smoothies or iced tea.
- Add to baking recipes, such as matcha cookies, brownies, cupcakes, bread and ice-cream.
- Mix with salt as a traditional dipping seasoning for tempura.
