Organic Greenfields Estate Green Tea - 15 Silky Pyramids

Origin The Uva Highlands of Sri Lanka. Garden name: Thotulagalla Tea Estate
Process Green – steamed and pan fired.
Health Benefits Ever since its discovery in China tea has been appreciated for its medicinal qualities. In more recent times research has focused upon the abundant polyphenols that are found in tea - particularly in green tea and their antioxidant effects. Polyphenols are said to neutralise free radicals which may help to halt or slowdown the onset of illnesses such as cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Our green leaf tea from the Thotulagalla Tea Garden which is part of the Greenfield Estate in the Uva highlands of Sri Lanka. High up in the mountains the tender young tea leaves are carefully plucked before being steamed and pan fired. The result is a light and pleasing flavour with delicate hints of summer meadows and sweet tobacco.

Ingredients: Green tea*. *Certified organic.

How to make the perfect Organic Greenfields Estate Green Tea:

Place 1 organic green tea pyramid into a cup/mug or small teapot, add water heated to around 70-80C and brew for between 3 and 5 mins. The pyramid can be reused for 2-3 cups more. When brewing loose leaves in a teapot use 1 teaspoon of leaf per person with 250mls of water per person.

A good breakfast tea requires plenty of flavour, body and brightness in order to compliment the pastries,bacon and eggs with which it might be enjoyed. To achieve these characteristics we source teas from two organic estates and blend them in proportions that give the best possible results.
The key component comes from the organic Jalinga Estate in Assam, India. Situated deep in the Brahmaputra valley in north east India, Jalinga is one of the best and largest tea estates in the region and is recognised for producing hearty and flavoursome teas. In keeping with teas from this region the cup is dominated by a rich and malty flavour. We prefer to use the smaller broken orange pekoe leaf in this blend since it brings about an extra depth of flavour. The Assam tea is lifted with the addition of organic Harrington Estate tea from Sri Lanka. These black teas are picked and processed on the estate that stands at 1,500 meters above sea level in the Dimbula region of island’s central mountain range. It adds brightness and a little complexity to the blend.
