Foojoy Organic Tender Tip Country Green Tea

Organic Tender Tip Country Green Tea is comprised of fine, twisted leaves that produce a simple green tea with a hint of sweetness and astringency.

Use 1-2 teaspoons of tea for every cup of water. Steep tealeaves in hot water for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing. This tea will generally yield 3-4 infusions per batch of leaves and will often yield its best flavor in the second and third infusion.
