Ingredients: Japanese green tea, lemongrass and ginger
To Brew: When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly - about 3 times. The secret is to use water that is about 180’F or 80’C. Place 1 teaspoon in your cup let the tea steep for about 3 minutes. If the leaves are reused the same day then steeping time should be increased to five minutes.
Green Dragon loose leaf tea (Green tea with Lemongrass and ginger)
Elizabeth & Barry Chantler and have been enthusiastic about loose leaf tea for years.
They have travelled the world visiting tea plantations in India, Sri Lanka, China and South-East Asia and attending tea ceremonies in Hong Kong and Malaysia. They only sell teas that they would drink, and they only like the best! They are also passionate about a fairer world marketplace, one in which everybody benefits, and they are as fussy about the source as much as the teas themselves.
Tea is good for you, it has benefits both for the body as well as the mind, and the better the tea the more beneficial it becomes. They believe that we have a nation of t-bag drinkers who are missing out on an enlivening and new experience (there are over 10,000 different types of loose leaf tea!).
Their aim is to make fine loose leaf tea locally available and to convert as many people as they can, to share this exciting and rewarding world.
