This black tea comes from a small family farm on the pristine island of Tsushima between Japan and Korea, where 90% of the island is still virgin forest. The Oishi family has been farming tea for a decade now, learning to specialize in organic cultivation and processing of black tea. Flavored with dried yuzu peels, a Japanese citrus, the Tsushima Yuzu Black Tea is deliciously sweet hot or cold.
- Tea: 5 grams
- Time: 3 minutes
- Water: 90C/194F, 400 ml
Sweet iced tea: This tea leaf blend also makes a wonderful iced tea. We found these parameters were quite nice for a single serving: 6 grams, 2 minutes, 300 ml at 90C/195F. We added 10g of sugar and mixed it before adding ice.
We shorten the steeping time and increase the tea amount to reduce the amount of tannins in the tea, creating a smoother flavor.
