This nuanced and ethereal specialty green tea dances on the palate with traces of stone fruit, warm butter, and sweet yellow grass. It is one of the newer green tea offerings we are working with and we couldn't be more excited! Our producer only had 2 cases of this spring, 2023, tea in stock, so we scooped up the both of them.
Chinese Green Tea.
8 oz Cup
- Scoop a heaping tablespoon of tea into infuser.
- Heat water to 175°F (before boiling).
- Pour 8 oz. of water over tea leaves.
- Steep tea for 2-3 minutes (depending on taste preference).
- Remove infuser and enjoy tea.
Simply add to your infuser one heaping tablespoon of leaf per 8 oz. of water and place it in your pot, then add the appropriate amount of 175°F water and let it steep for 2-3 minutes. Remove the infuser and enjoy.
Brewing Iced Tea
We don't normally recommend serving premium quality teas over ice, however we found that Cloud Silk makes a delicious iced tea. Our opinion is that a cooled concentrate works best, as regular-strength brew tends to become watery as the ice melts. So, use the above leaf quantities, but half the water, allow it to cool, then pour it over ice and enjoy! The brew will dilute down to proper strength as the ice melts.
