AHMAD TEA Green Tea (100 Tea Bags) 200g
Green Tea Pure is our classic green tea expression. A blend of carefully-sourced quality Chinese teas, it offers the perfect balance between cleansing dried grass notes and soothing toasted flavours. Take a sip and feel both calmed and uplifted at the same time. To create this blend, our Tea Masters source fine green teas from China’s Jiangxi, Anhui and Zhejiang provinces. Known as the ‘Golden Triangle’, this area is renowned for the quality of its teas. Our Tea Masters include high quality Chun Mee in the blend – both silvery tips and leaf fannings. This tea is harvested in the early spring when it has a more delicate, sweet flavour. Chun Mee translates as ‘precious eyebrow’, a name inspired by the curled appearance of the dried tea leaves. With a slightly nuttier taste than many green teas, it brings a lovely rounded character to this blend. Infuse a bag of our Green Tea Pure in hot water and watch the colour turn a pretty golden-yellow, before breathing in the pure, energising bouquet. Green tea has been enjoyed in China for over 5,000 years and is an essential part of the nation’s culture. Unlike black tea, green tea generally isn’t allowed to oxidise, so it retains its fresh colour and grassy flavours. For this blend, the leaves are ‘fixed’ by pan-frying in large woks, a traditional technique that seals in the flavours and natural antioxidants of the tea plant. Pan-frying imparts a delicate ‘toasted’ note which makes this style of Chinese tea uniquely satisfying.
