Green Tea Pure is our classic green tea expression. A blend of carefully-sourced quality Chinese teas, it offers the perfect balance between cleansing dried grass notes and soothing toasted flavours. Take a sip and feel both calmed and uplifted at the same time.
To create this blend, our Tea Masters source fine green teas from China’s Jiangxi, Anhui and Zhejiang provinces. Known as the ‘Golden Triangle’, this area is renowned for the quality of its teas. Our Tea Masters include high quality Chun Mee in the blend – both silvery tips and leaf fannings. This tea is harvested in the early spring when it has a more delicate, sweet flavour. Chun Mee translates as ‘precious eyebrow’, a name inspired by the curled appearance of the dried tea leaves. With a slightly nuttier taste than many green teas, it brings a lovely rounded character to this blend. Infuse a bag of our Green Tea Pure in hot water and watch the colour turn a pretty golden-yellow, before breathing in the pure, energising bouquet.
The quality of water used as an impact on the quality of the tea. Always use freshly drawn water or filtered water. Heat water to the recommended temperature using an electric hot water heater or a stove top kettle.
Heat fresh water to just under a boil or to a temperature between 80-90C.
Once the water reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be poured immediately over the tea bag. Keep the teapot covered to retain heat. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 2-3 minutes. When the tea is done steeping, immediately remove the tea and lightly stir.
This green tea has less caffeine than our black teas. It's important to keep in mind that brew time accounts for the primary influence over a tea's caffeine content.
