Marmara All Natural Green Tea is made from the leaves from Camellia Sinensis which is a small tree whose leaves and leaf buds are used to produce tea. Green Tea has undergone minimal oxidation during processing. Green tea is less processed so these tea leaves therefore retain their green color and delicate flavor. The leaves are picked at a very young stage and are only dried in the sun.
Brewed green tea is typically green, yellow or even light brown in color. The flavor of green tea can be described as fresh, light and floral. Marmara All Natural Green tea is not usually served with milk but you may add honey or sugar to sweeten.
Heat 1 cup water just short of boiling. Remove from heat and add 1 teaspoon of Marmara Green Tea leaves. Brew 1-3 minutes only. Strain and sweeten with honey, sugar and add a squeeze of lemon.
Many herbal teas taste great when iced, to make any of our herbal teas or tea blends cold, simply double the amount of tea used. Steep with the same hot water temperature and steep time as if making hot tea, then pour the brewed tea into a cup nearly full of ice. Enjoy!
