Just after harvest, Emerald Lily tea leaves are
spread out on screen tables to wither under air
flow. Proper withering creates a smooth and
delicious flavor while reducing grassy notes.
Emerald Lily is finished with an oven-baking
that helps draw out its fresh aromatic bouquet.
Tasting Notes: Crisp flavor with lively aromas
of fresh herbs, wild orchid and a
hint of wildflower honey
Ingredients: Organic and Fair Trade Certified™ green tea.
Additional Info: Green Teas are enjoyed worldwide for

Water Temperature: 185°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 4 minutes (1st infusion), 5-6 minutes (2nd infusion)
We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

I was searching for a loose leaf tea that was tasty, organically grown and fair trade and I found the Emerald Lily. I followed the brewing instructions and found it to be perfectly strong with no bitter after taste. When I'm feeling frisky, I mix it with freshly juiced pineapple or mango. Love this tea and hope my local store carries more from them.
