Steeped for up to 1 minute, this Green tea gives the drinker a light, slightly herbal flavored delicious hot beverage. Assam Green teas are noted for their strong astringent flavor when steeped for longer periods of time. Measure the steeping time to suit your taste preference. This tea is fully handmade: plucked, steamed, hand rolled, fired, sorted for impurities and graded in a fully certified organic plantation and processing house. Enjoy as a calming, healthy beverage.
