Phuc Long Lotus Whole Leaf Green Tea - on Sale!

Lotus Tea has been our "Farmer's Market" special iced tea for many years! Even kids love it unsweetened.

Our newest tea partner, Phuc Long supplies fine, whole-leaf green tea from Vietnam. Minimally processed; you can click on the pictures of the leaves below and see they are still slightly silvery. The silvering is what makes white tea "white", and is an indication of the youth of the baby leaves and the minimal handling. The packaging is both beautiful and convenient: inside, the tea is packed in a foil bag for freshness.

Personally, we love a low-astringency green tea, so we like to brew this at a lower temperature (170°) and re-use the leaves. The first brew has a pleasant sharpness, while the second brew is incredibly smooth. We recommend trying this at least once to see if you love it, too.

100 grams, packed in a bag inside a decorative canister. THIS IS AN AMAZING TEA. We serve it at our take-out shop. 

Lotus Green Tea

Like jasmine green tea, lotus tea is regular green tea that has been scented with lotus blossoms. You can tell this is a natural scent because a few lotus petals remain in the mix as proof (they enhance the aroma, too!). As is traditional for lotus tea, this is a "sticks and leaves" tea, meaning it contains both the top leaves and the tip of their stem, to complement the lotus flavor.

If you've never tried lotus tea, you've been missing out! It's always a smash hit when we taste-test it at markets and parties. The lotus aroma is difficult to describe, but it has hints of chamomile and a subtle richness. It's also a bit naturally sweet. Particularly refreshing when iced!

The Araku Valley of India

India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the blight of 1870, when growers needed to hybridize to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other unique, resistant species.
