step 1: leaves
For one cup, measure out 3 grams into your teapot or brew mug.
step 2: water
Heat 250ml of water to 75°C.
step 3: time
Pour your heated water over the leaves and steep for 2-3 minutes.
Sea mist, copious rainfall and circulating winds create the ideal conditions for tea cultivation, allowing the leaves to grow slowly and develop complex flavour. The island’s rich volcanic soil and native wildlife also bring a unique terroir to the tea.
Picked at first harvest, the leaves yield a beautifully delicate, fresh and spring-like vegetal green tea flavour – with notes of sweet nectar. Clean, light and refreshing, this is the perfect green tea for sipping throughout the day.
