Green Tea Loose Leaf Caddy 50g
A delicious blend of hand-plucked Cornish Tea from Tregothnan and the finest Green Tea from China. Tregothnan Green Tea ticks all the boxes – it is rich in health benefits as well as having an incredible flavour.
Our tea grows in inimitable conditions and is from the same type of bushes as those from which Green Tea was first discovered in China. The process of creating black teas varies here, as oxidisation is replaced by steaming so the fresh leaves retain their natural green colour.
A devoted drinker recently said: “Tregothnan Green Tea is not bitter like others that I’ve tried – I have to say it is the best I’ve ever tasted!”
Green tea contains powerful antioxidants that help fight illness plus nutrients such as vitamins and minerals. It can relieve the feeling of fatigue, boost the immune system, reduce cholesterol levels, and reports show that it can also help you lose weight. It also removes toxins from the body naturally and safely.
Depending on how strong you like your tea, 50g of Green Tea will make 10-12 pots and can also be reinfused.
For perfect brewing, add your desired amount of loose leaf tea into the metal infuser of the teapot – we recommend a heaped teaspoon for each person and an extra spoonful for the teapot! Place the infuser into the teapot.
Infuse for 2 to 4 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea – we recommend at least 3 minutes of infusion time before pouring. Whole leaves take a little longer to brew, but the short wait is well worth it.
Remove the infuser – the leaves will have expanded to three times their original size. If you would like further cups once the teapot is empty, simply replace the infuser with the same tea leaves and add more water.
Green Tea is usually served without milk. You can also sweeten it with honey or sugar to taste.
