Information:

1.1 pound / 500 grams packed in vacuum sealed foil bag for maximum freshness. Did you know that the tea you are holding is lucky? First of all, it’s organic, so no pesticides or chemical fertilizers were used in its manufacture. Ok, that’s the result of careful organic processes more than luck, but it’s still a good thing! Secondly, peaches and apricots are both fruits that have been considered lucky by various cultures over the centuries.

[if !supportEmptyParas] [endif]

Ancient Japanese folklore tells the tale of Momotaro, the “Peach Boy”, born from an enormous peach his parents found floating down a river. Legends tell of Momotaro’s great adventures to help bring prosperity and peace to both his parents and his village.

Half a world away, in old England, old tales deem Apricots to be good luck when they turn up in dreams. The ancients believed that such a dream would result in immediate prosperity and recognition for your deeds. Certain legends indicate that King Arthur himself dreamt of Apricots regularly.

This tea is a delight. The citrus flavor of peach swirls and mixes with the sweetness of apricot in a way that tingles the tongue. Try a cup with a dash of milk, and a touch of sugar – then let us know how you do in the luck department!

Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straight-up’

[if !supportEmptyParas] [endif]

Iced tea-brewing method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!
