The sister blend to our unique Yuzu Black. This Japanese sencha tea is grassy, vegetal, and very smooth with a hint of apricots. The fruitiness in this blend is warmly complemented by the yuzu's lemon-grapefruit citrus finish. Yuzu is a Japanese citrus lemon that is valued for its highly aromatic rind. Although this citron doesn’t contain much liquid, its zest and juice are used in perfumes, vinegars, syrups, and as a souring ingredient that stands up well to heat in cooking. Another iced pleasure!

Brewing 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.
