Green Tea w/ Mint Thés de la Pagode (France Organic)
Thés de la Pagode use imperial or fine picking methods: the young shoots or “pekoe” are picked in springtime from small gardens high in the mountains. The bud and the first two leaves contain 73% of the antioxidants of the plant This black tea, paying tribute to the famous Indian “masala chai” (literally meaning “spiced tea” in Hindi) is a classic combination of Ceylon black tea and “hot” spices, traditionally enjoyed with milk and sugar at Christmas time in Eastern countries. The Grands thés des gourmets’ organically grown Tea of Eternal Snow uses the recipe of this famous combination with a base of the wonderful Ceylon black tea, harvested from the heights of the UVA regions of Sri Lanka, with a refined, clear taste. It is enhanced by a selection of the best spices: Cardamom, Cinnamon, Clove and Ginger. These flavours embrace the palate with their rich, powerful notes. The fresh and tart accompaniments of Orange and Mandarin bring balance to this spiced tea which is the perfect accompaniment to all your mealtimes over winter and its taste will transport you to Christmas and other exotic places.
