Creating moments of pause, the ritual of tea-making is a simple act of self-care. With a rich history in the East, tea ceremonies were practiced by Buddhists monks in Japan, founded upon the reverence of the beautiful rituals in daily life. A tea ceremony can represent harmony, respect, purity, and tranquillity and allows space within the day to practice gratitude and presence.
Our Pouchong Oolong Tea is a whole leaf tea, hand-picked at 1500 - 2500 feet above sea level in Pin Lin, Taiwan. Despite its oolong status, the Pouchong tea sits somewhere between an oolong and a green tea; more mellow than a traditional oolong but stronger than a green tea - a great tea to start with if you're new to loose leaf teas.
Each leaf is hand-picked, rolled, and dried for a delicate and refreshing tea. Naturally low in caffeine, this tea can be enjoyed throughout the day.
A 25g pouch will provide 10 cups, or 20 if you choose to second brew.
Add one teaspoon-full of tea per cup to a tea infuser or teapot. Pour over boiled water that has been left to cool for a few minutes. Leave to infuse for 2 minutes for a milder tea or up to 4 minutes if you prefer a stronger brew. Take a moment to yourself to enjoy the blend.
Leaves can be reused for a second brew.
