Our Hawaiian Island Green Tea is harvested from young tender shoots at our peak harvesting time in late spring – early summer to bring out good balanced flavor. Harvesting comes when leaves are long and tender, picked at three leaves and a bud.
Our unique pan-fire processing gives the leaves a gently twist, refreshing green aroma and little bitterness. High temperature roasting adds sweet nutty finish and light yellow to amber hue to the brew.
Tea leaves hold up to 2-3 steepings. Steeping at 190-200F for 1-2min gives good balance in flavor with high roast and mild floral aroma. Use spring water with moderate amount of minerals (30-150mg/l) and neutral pH for best result.
It’s pleasant for many green tea lovers experienced or just starting.
