Tasting Notes

The unique flavour of one the rarest and exquisite green teas lies somewhere between the succulent vegetal notes of buttery asparagus found in Japanese Sencha and the hazelnutty richness of Chinese Longjing.

A velvety soft mouth feel with notes of ripe gooseberries and pineapple cake.

Quantity

Use 2g of tea per 150ml of water.

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use 70°C (176°F) water.

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.

Infusions

You can infuse this tea at least three times. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

69p per cup based on 2g of tea per 150ml of water and 3 infusions.

As with all our exquisite loose leaf green teas, we recommend using lower temperature water. For Waikato Green we'd recommend trying a lower temperature (around 65°C/149°F) and a longer steep (around 2 minutes), but please do experiment with higher temperatures and a shorter infusion to bring out the flavours you most enjoy.
